Bass lines analyzed in a fresh perspective

At least to me. Saw this and I cannot not share ( take that double negative!)

Tower of Power was big at my university, and they had the best horn section. Good memories

Back in middle school days, my very very white friend got a giant boom box for Christmas. he went to the mall to the record store and told the guy he wanted ‘boom box music’. The guy told him to buy Tower of Power Live in Living Color. Us white boys played that endlessly and I’ve been a huge lifelong fan ever since. I can play most of Doc’s bari parts on all the hits, but sadly, Rocco’s bass lines are going to take a few more years (decades?) to master. They really were a sight to see. Last time I saw them though a couple years ago, they were a bit past their prime and a little sad.
