    Ok, as a professional bass player of umpteen years, add me to the fan list:

    - Paul S. Denman (Sade)
    - Ray Brown
    - Mike Porcaro (Toto)
    - David Hungate (Toto)
    - Will Lee (too numerous to mention.. note, Will received a 'lifetime achievement award' with Bass Player magazine)
    - as far as the "far out" technical stuff, try Alain Caron
    I love the way music makes me feel.

    Very Hot!!!!
    Thanks for the heads up Hoerninger, I'd love to see a CD collaboration with these guys.
    Bit of a tease though, this is not released in the US
    Just play music!

    How about Gerald Johnson. He was Steve Miller's bass player in the 70's & 80's. There is a King Biscuit double album with disc 1 recorded live in 1973 & disc 2 live in 1975 or 76. These recordings capture the band at their best! Gerald Johnson lays down some incredible bass!

    Allen Woody!

    George Porter Jr!

    Andy Frazier! (Kossoff was one of the greatest guitarists ever! Go get Free Live!)

    Paul McCartney! Insane stuff with the Beatles. I'm always blown away with what Paul was doing back in the 1960's. Very technical bass lines. Not your common rythm guy.

    Felix Papalardi- MOUNTAIN! There are some great live CD's from 1969-1974!

    Somewhere in this thread around two years ago I remember mentioning that there hasn't been too many great female bass players other than Tina Weymouth and a few others in recent times. Well, we can now add Esparanza Spalding to the list. I'm hoping to see her play in London next month.

    She was on Letterman last night, first time I'd heard/seen her play. Nice stuff.

    Since the scarcity of great female bassist resurfaced, let's resurface Tal one more time. Her bass solo on Jeff Beck's Live at Ronnie Scott's bluray is incredible.

    Of course, it sounds a lot better on a full frequency surround set, like the Two Jims Theatre, where, when I heard it, if she had been in the room I might have asked her to...




    ...let me adopt her. (what were you thinking, dirty old men?)

    Even Jeff Beck is like "You want me to play after that??

    This is truly a sad day for me. I saw "Duck" at the Monterey Pop Festival when he played with Booker T (as part of the MG's), and again behind Otis Redding. He was one of the greats.
