@ allmusic :

@last.fm : His playing style was noteworthy for containing intricate solos in the higher register. His innovations also included the use of harmonics and the “singing” quality of his melodies on fretless bass.

@Discogs : He had that magical thing about him, the same kind of thing Jimi Hendrix had. – Joe Zawinul
