    That's Maputo, from the Bob James and David Sanborn "Double Vision" album. Original was played by Marcus Miller.

    There's also a version of "Maputo" on Marcus Miller's "Live And More" album.

    I don't think the orignal was slapped except for a few accented parts here and there.

    DWBass, yeah I remember it like that too, Marcus mostly slapped a few accents in the outro. For the rest it sounds like he palm-muted and plucked with his thumb. I actually have Live and more, must listen again as I have not heard that version in years.
