Double Bass

Reading the comments on a Davey Graham YouTube video:

I discovered that the bass player on the track was Danny Thompson, and checking the other artists playing on the album, “Large and Life and Twice as Natural”, I found they included Jon Hiseman – on drums, and Dick Heckstall-Smith – on saxophone.  These same two have  also played with Jack Bruce (more famous for electric bass), including  on “Things we Like”, which has appeared here before:

I have often wondered if there was any interaction over the years between Danny Thompson and Jack Bruce. I have still not seen or read any direct evidence of this, but given their interaction with Hiseman and Heckstall-Smith, it seems highly likely.
