Laboriel has been slowly becoming a bigger name over the past few years. I remember reading about him in Modern Drummer 3 years ago or so. I believe he was touring with Sting at the time.
Abe Sr. is one of the baddest bass players I've ever seen in my life.
He is a jazz/fusion monster who has slap/funk chops for days. His mastery of chords and contrapuntal lines make his solos sound like a one-man bass orchestra.
BTW, check this out:
A new Live At The Baked Potato, "ANOTHER NIGHT AT THE BAKED POTATO", will be released April 10th. The album contains three new tunes and great performances of favorites from the last "Live Album". The band includes Greg Mathieson on keyboards, Michael Landau on guitars, Abraham Laboriel Sr. on bass and Abraham Laboriel Jr. on drums. Abe Jr. has been touring with Paul McCartney and will soon tour with Sting.
