hi to everyone.

recently john patittucci was here in panama and i went to his "clinics". one of the things he said was about playing roots in a song. he said that he donīt like. he said it was like going to the restaurant with a friend and after a while of being sit there your friend ask you "do you know where does the restaurant is?". its obvious!!.

he prefears to use other tones and colors in his walking but not to much roots.  

well i recognize that hearing this was something new because i have always learned to play rootless chords because the bassist is in charge of that.

what do you thing about it_?  

it was in the panama jazz festival. the main band was danilo perez trio.

piano: danilo perez      
bass: john patittucci
drums: jack dejohnette  

i would like to read some comments.

donīt you just hate it when you play a really hip voicing and the bass player suddenly decides to change the bass note, making your voicing sound extremely lame?

the bass player must have really good taste to be able to do this well. ron carter is a name that comes to mind. listen to his stuff with miles, great bass note choices!
