......It's all about Oteil. He's driving the ship. I've sung his praises for a while now, but I have to say, when I hear a Desdemona, Mt Jam or anything big, it's Oteil doing things that just blow me away. Subtle things, that at first listen, you may not even realize it's him. It's like lead guitar, rhythm guitar & laying down the groove all in one.

Oteils playing in 2007 was just amazing and has shown much growth. Oteil was mentioning recently how happy he was with his playing last year.

Sheep, that is an excellent complement to give Oteil. I once heard both Oteil and Derrick say that Barry Oakley was the Allman Brothers 3rd Guitar Player......that is exactely what Oteil is and brings such a groove to the stage. Im really looking forward to hearing this years tour.

Seth, as you might imagine, I spend a lot of my live ABB time focusing on Oteil. Great observation!

Otiel is slick! He can lay it down thick when he needs to, but skillfully lightens it up when needed also. He plays bass like most play guitar! He thinks outside the bass!
