Hi Max, I wanted to know:Are you the one who was playing the great bass on "The Crusaders - In The Middle Of The River" or was it Wilton Felder?

Hello, was just getting my 70's funk fix (Grazing in the grass this time..)and noticed your comment on playing that session- wow!! Have to say that "Miles of Aisles" is a top 5 album of mine. LA Express certainly helped bridge the gap between jazz and popular music. Thanks so much for providing decades of great listening!!

Max. This is just a note to say how much I enjoy your playing on the "Hissing of Summer Lawns" recording. It was inspirational playing that back in the 70's set the bench mark for my own aspirations as a player about as high as it could get. Not a note more than necessary and absolute perfect taste in every phrase. Magnificent work. Thank you for the many years of listening enjoyment. Dave

Hi Dave, Many thanks for your kind words. You nailed it for me. I have always been a rhythm player and an accompanist. I believe that has always been my true role as a bass player. That's where I get my kicks!! All the best to you!!! m

Hello Max, Curious if you might remember my father, Don Huston, from your time at the University of Iowa? He mentioned a few times over the years of having some acquaintance with you at UI, often prompted by a Kenton album playing in the background! Today, I've been prompted by a Joni Mitchell album you're credited on, to try and connect. I've frequently noticed your name on assorted LPs and congratulate you on a wonderful and impressive career in music. Dad passed in 2002. Any clarity you might be able to provide on the UI relationship would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff Huston
