yes high times! toby's work on blow your mind (and all tracks, but we are talking about this one now) is really amazing, all the part 2 of the song is governed by him and i love it, he is a master and really got the touch and the style.
sadly i don't see anything like this in matts playing :cry:

yes, i have this track , mate!!!
toby is the greatest rhodes piano player!!!
and about blow your mind-
when i play intro of blow your mind on my sampled rhodes piano,
i have such a strong magical feeling, i cant describe...
my dream is to meet Toby in person and ask him
all the questions i have!
if i had a chance to know him in person and listen to his stories and thoughts about music, i think i could write a book about him! i want such book to exist so much!!
i love Toby !!!

The great Toby

Toby Smith was a real good and fantastic pianist and composer. Even in concerts he made a good job, for instance very good improvisated solos in when you gonna learn or scam.

Slpin´and Slidin´ is another example.... We miss you so much, Toby!! come back!!
