George Porter


The incomparable George Porter bends a string on his bass guitar during a "Meter Men" set at the 2009 Jazzfest.

If you've ever handled a bass guitar, you know that one of these strings could hold a barge on shore in a strong current. The maestro bends it like it was on a Ukelele.

Recognized as one of the best bass players on the planet, George still works constantly. The fact that those of us who are lucky enough to live in New Orleans can routinely see a musician of his stature at a small venue like the Maple Leaf makes all of us aware of how lucky we are.
