comment
With his bass strapped to his back, bassist Rodney Whitaker works harder than a traveling salesman. He has hawked his wares in jazz clubs throughout the country. He has two gifts. He plays with the delicateness of a grandmother picking lint off her grandson's Sunday suit, and he writes compositions like, "Children in the Womb" and "Children of the Light" that shows he's a musician with a delicate soul.
