Danny Thompson

In this blogpost we salute a musician who HAS made solo albums, but is more known as bass player for (close to) everybody else. The reason i started to think about Danny Thompson now, was a Sun Ra album I was playing, whith a "Danny Thompson" on it. This is a sax-man, so our man is not everywhere, thank God. Let's mention some of our friends that have worked with Danny Thompson: Richard Thompson, Marianne Faithfull, Norma Waterson, Billy Bragg, Pentangle, John Martyn, Davy Graham, David Sylvian, Linda Thompson (new record next week) and many more. See Discography here.
