    With a black fedora and a pair of ray bans…ditto congrats times a million. There is no bass player on the planet that even comes close to Jack Casady. I feel priveleged to have been alive and hear him play as many times as I have. He carries the rythm of the universe thru his fingers. Congratulation Jack!

    Thanks for the opportunity, Jorma! Jack’s music is steeped deep in my soul, like being visited by a brother who cares, every day I get the privilege to benefit from the magnificence of Jack’s profound work, I’m so grateful for Jack’s high-spirited smile it makes feel relieved, makes you soar when shaking hands! I feel great whenever I think of Wonderful Jack.
    Steady As She Goes, Jack! Que Vous ȇtes immense!
