    My bass player's business partner is good friends with Gadd and Roth. We met up in the city at a Chinese restaurant and I got to chat with Arlen for quite a while. Very personable guy with lots of great stories. We went to the Iridium where Gadd was playing with the reunited L'Image (Steve, Tony Levin on bass, David Spinozza on guitar, Mike Mainieri on vibes, Warren Berhardt on keys). We sat with Steve's wife and got to meet the band. They played an incredible set of 70's-flavored melodic jazz. Just a great night all around.

    For me it's Steve, David Garibaldi, and Wes Starr (blues drummer).

    I've just stumbled onto this thread, and have been a fan of David Spinozza since he put out solo records in the late '70s. He's played on everything, and I didn't know until recently that he played the great solo break in Dr. John's hit "Right Place, Wrong Time."

    I assume Spinozza's still playing the '51 Tele he's used for 40 years. Do you know what amp he's using these days?

    I think he was using a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Boss multi-effect unit.
