I was at this show, and I’d have to agree with Dansoxfan (although this is the first time this yankee fan agreed with any Sox fan). Oteil has definetly come into his own as a bass player. Last night proved just that. I commented to a friend of mine how odd it was that there was no extended bass solo last night, even after the drum solo (which was one of the best in recent memory). Instead, there were several songs that allowed Oteil the chance to riff out and come up with some good licks. It wasn’t over kill, and it wasn’t a momentum killer (like his scat solos can be at times). He got to show some of his skill and talent, and in my opinion, it fit in better with the overall sound of the show
