    Dear Bass community,

    I'm currently working on a graduate school project for a class in 20th Century Music Literature. I am making a timeline of seminal repertoire for the bass from the late 1800s to present. These can be jazz or legit, upright or electric. The list should only reflect seminal works, as the subject is too vast to include every solo or bass recording.

    Obviously the list will include things like "Donna Lee" from Jaco Pastorius's solo album, and compositions played by Francois Rabbath, but it won't stop there.

    I'm looking for input from the bass community. What pieces do you consider to be the quintessential pieces for the bass repertoire that have been composed or performed in the last 150 years?

    You definitely have to have Frank Proto ' s Bass Trip in there. Also you probably want to look into some late romantic bassist like Koussevitsky, because they set the bar for modern soloists
