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.
