When Marc Johnson solos, he really 'says' something melodically - unlike so many other bassists who are merely content to display their technical skills. (How many of us have suffered through interminable bass solos!) The way he interacts and shifts with pianists and other soloists is astonishing. MJ is not just a player to trot out 4/4 beats in strict keeping with key/chord settings, but like other top line bassists - think Scott LaFaro, Ron Carter, Christian McBride - he constantly probes and propels the music. Adore his work with the incomparable Bill Evans.
