    I checked on you tube to see what i could find. Lots of Jamerson and old Rock.
    Are there any isolated tracks floating around that are more modern, Funk, contemporary Jazz, Latin, R&B, some of the great players of the last decade?

    You can get a lot of Cliff Burton.

    Cliff Burton has been dead for 26 years, I don't think his lines fit the OP's timeline or genre.

    Well, you've been here for 8 years. That's a little disturbing.

    I don't think this fits the bill, but all of Stadium Arcadium by RHCP is on YT. Like this. I've done some searching myself and that's all I can find. Unless you're into nu metal pick playing.

    This is a good question though, I'd like to know this too.

    I posted that question mainly to get a better sense of how clean you need to be recording in a contemporary setting, modern tone round wounds full range etc.
    Lot's of guys when they talk about low action and string noises say things like "it enhances my tone, it gives the sound character" etc. I like low action too but I also like to dig in. Playing live there's no problem with that but recording is another story. That's why I was looking for examples in the style of music that I like.Marcus Miller , Alex Al, Will Lee, Melvin Davis, Anthony Jackson, John Pena,Marc Van Wageningen, Ney Conceicao. I've done a whole lot of searching on you tube but there's so much on there that I'm sure I am missing something.

    Repertoire is still limited, but there is a variety of styles represented.

    And they're all original multitracks!

    I've got a bunch of bass tracks up here from various different genres, although not all the ones you mention:
