In Reply to: What cd's should I get??? posted by Tim Schnautz on June 03, 2001 at 14:27:38:
Here's a few discs I have in my changer right now.
Get Marcus Miller's "The Sun Don't Lie," and "Tales." Also try to grab John Patitucci's self-titled first CD, though I've heard it's out of print. Me'Shells "Plantation Lullabies" gots the groove; "Sailing The Seas of Cheese" is Claypool's best effort; "Abbey Road" is also McCartney's best in my opinion. To hear some ripping upright rhthym section work, get "Miles Smiles" with Ron Carter/Tony Williams on bass/drums, and Wynton Marsalis' "Standard Time, Vol.1" and check out "Autumn Leaves."
Led Zeppelin II exhibits some of the best rock bass ever by John Paul Jones. And don't forget Jaco's first, Weather Report's "Heavy Weather," and Stanley Clarke's self titled disc.
oh yeah, also get Bill Evans "Sunday At The Village Vanguard" for some conversational jazz, and Tower of Power's self-titled disc for some of Rocco Prestia's fingerstyle funk.
just the tip of the iceberg.

: so far I've got School Days and I wanna Play for You on LP, and I plan on updating that w/cd's...
