My all-time favorite bass player

Out of the bass players around I like most Al Gare is my favorite one.
I discovered him when I first saw King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys, the hottest jump n' jive band on earth, during my year studying lighting design in London.
He was the one double bass player who really had to play wireless because of his moving around the stage and walking the whole venue with his bass.
Now days he is still playing the bass and you can see him playing in the band of Imelda May.
He also has, together with his wife, his own burlesque club, the Candy Box Burlesque, in Birmingham.
In this video you can see him perform with the Biscuit Boys in 1990.
Have fun.
