for solo bassists, check out Michael Manring and Brian Bromberg.
: 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.
: : Ok guys,
: : Since I got me a "brown bass" I've gotten on a Stanley Clarke kick! Lord help me, he 'd man! [of the hour!]
: : so far I've got School Days and I wanna Play for You on LP, and I plan on updating that w/cd's...
: : I'd like to form a comprehensive collection of BASS (especially solo) artists. I know there's alot of them out there.
: : could y'all recommed me what artists and titles of cd's I should get?
: : I have some Jaco, and working on Clarke..
: : What's your favorites???
: : Oh YEAH. Peter Duncan of Zon fame [ahem!] has had some really pompous flame wars in other web areas but regardless, he's a VERRRY talented player. I have a "sampler" of his and I would like to get more of his work as well...
: : Tell me guys. Where should I start?
: : THANKS!
