    Bill Laswell could use a hand

    Bill Laswell, prolific bassist and promoter of musicians from Bootsy (he got him to quit crack) to discovery of Whitney Houston and Buckethead as well as a founding member of Material, Praxis and Massacre among volumes of other projects has been sick and needs donations to keep his studio going.

    Some examples:



    this one takes a little time to get going, turn up the bass, it's deft

    Chip in a couple of bucks if you can.

    this is where i first heard laswell.
    the album turned me on to drummer ronald shannon jackson, guitarist sonny sharrock, many others.

    saw him play with both - and the recently passed sax titan peter brotzmann - as LAST EXIT, possibly the heaviest band to emerge from the jazz universe.

    yes i will chip in too
