I just thought i'd add my opinions on this little debate. Flea/matt freeman/norwood are all known by intelligent bass players because they are the names associated with alternative music bassists. Jaco/wooten/miller/mingus are all virtuoso bass players who mainly operate on their own, a lot of people only know them from their work with other famous musicians{Jaco-weather report.Wooten-flecktones.Miller-Miles Davis and mingus, well everyone from dizzy gillespie to miles davis and back. In a way these 'virtuoso' players are for the more educated musician. I started listening to flea cos i loved the chilli's and freeman cause i loved rancid. I liked rancid and the chillis before i started playing so when i really listened to them it was like fuck can the bass really do that. Then as my love for Flea and funk grew i began finding better bassists thus my knowledge of the others.

By the way my fave bass player is Flea, although he isn't technically as good as wooten/miller/jaco etc his style is what really gets me. Raw Funky Punky Emotion. And he's also completely self taught. anyhow seeya.
