original recording of "Fly with the Wind" in 1976, he probably has more experience with this tune than any other bassist on the planet. He digs into the familiar opening groove with aplomb, and drives the band relentlessly through the choruses and interludes. Onaje Allan Gumbs handles piano duties, and brings down the energy level a notch from the composer's approach. This is more a hot tropical breeze, rather than the Tyneresque hurricane. Sharpe may have learned from the masters, but he's ready to do some mentoring himself.
