Thanks for that, ABD.  I included John Entwistle in this topic's equivalent on PSF but criminally forgot him this time round. Shocked

I've never heard this song before (I'm not familiar with this album as a whole). It's beautiful! Ye gods, what a player. Roll Eyes

Glad you dig it -- "The Who by Numbers" I consider very underrated -- along with Quadrophenia my fave LP by them.

How about this track by Kinga Glyk (a new name to me) for some amazing bass work? Shocked

She's quite good, isn't she?  I like her cover of Donna Lee on her little mini bass.

Yes she is. Grin Thanks for that. I see commenters are describing her instrument as a "bass uke"... Undecided

I'm guessing there are quite a few different types of mini bass these days. Stanley Clarke on my Return to Forever LP (Romantic Warrior) is credited with playing, among other things, a piccolo bass. (That was 40 years ago.) Maybe it was this one:

Yeah, I think alembic made Clarke all kinds of custom stuff.

The bass Kinga is playing is made by a primarily ukulele making company, but is tuned like a bass and has special rubber strings so it can play at normal bass pitch.  The company is called Kala.

Now you mention it, Clarke is credited on the same album with playing an Alembic bass with instant flanger.

Ah, so bass uke is about right. Thank you for the information. Smiley
