    I went to see Chris Cornell in Baltimore last night. Chris blew the doors off the joint, but the real surprise for me was a young man named Fantastic Negrito, from the Bay Area.

    I'm downloading his album now on the strength of his performance last night. Can't comment on the album yet, but if you have a chance to catch this guy live, you should do it. He's fantastic.

    Great find. It's a great day when you stumble into new talent like that. I stumbled onto the great pianist Michel Camilo when he opened for Dave Valentin at the Blue Note NYC years ago. He played with Anthony Jackson (another monster) on bass and a fantastic drummer whose name unfortunately escapes me.

    I just discovered this band. Only clicked on the YouTube link because of the silly song title. Great stuff!

    Kind of cool to see this surface.

    I was first exposed to him due to his collab with ZZ Ward.
