Man, I've heard most of your set [with zBug], it was fuckin' brilliant! What you do on your bass [NS Design CR6-string fretless electric cello] is amazing, ok it's amazing, REALLY amazing! Ah, so impressed... what your first song reminded me of was... [Airto Moreira's Nativity featuring Jaco Pastorius] ...one of the greatest things I've ever heard in my life.
