Fat Friday Feature: Dan Bergland On "Spunky Sprawl"

Today's featured bassist/bass part is Dan Berglund of E.S.T.  He and Reid Anderson (of the Bad Plus) are two of my favorite upright bass players.  The speed, precision and creativity of Dan's playing blows my mind.  E.S.T. fans know that the band has broken up due to the tragic freak accident of its piano player.  I'll have to check to see what Dan's up to these days.  For now, sit back and enjoy this performance - bass fireworks start at approximately the 1:44 mark.
