In 1968 Jerry Scheff and James Burton met for the first time at Bob Ross's Harmony Recorders in hollywood during the recording of Bobby Jameson's WORKING album. Impressed by Scheff's bass playing and down to earth demeanor, Burton's immediate choice for a bass player, when asked to assemble a Las Vegas show band for Elvis Presley, was Jerry.
