Mine is Boom by TM Stevens. Unreal Funk.
Do you mean "album by a lead-type bassist"? I'm not too big on "bassist albums" (one track of bass per song is usually enough for me) but I really like Stanley Clarke Live 1976-1977.
Radio Free Albemuth - Stu Hamm
Jimmy Earl - Jimmy Earl
I'm with you.
If the album in-question is more "music-first"...then I'm good.
So, Gary Willis' Bent & No Sweat I like...Patitucci's albums are usually very good (very strong debut album, IMO).
I might prefer Jaco's Word Of Mouth album over his impressive debut recording.
All these years, I have never bought that one! Is this his "Rock" touring band w/ Ray Gomez?
Almost anything by Michael Manring but 'Soliloquy' is _just_ solo bass and a current favorite.
If you allow other musicians, 'DeManIa' and 'Equilibre' stay at the top of my playlist...
Michael Manring - Book of Flame
Soliloqy by Mike Manring.
It's hard to pick just one.
Hard to pick just one ...
Right now I like Micheal Manring, Jeff Schmidt, Zander Zon, John Patitucci and Alain Caron.
If I really really have to pick just one it would be John Patitucci
dick lovgren/nica group - lounge
My first fusion album and I got it because he plays for meshuggah.
Roger Waters "Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking"
Terry "Geezer" Butler solo work
Chris Squire "Fish Out Of Water"
Geddy Lee "My Favorite Headache"
Jaco's debut album was earth-shattering.
But my "favorite bassist solo album" is "Harmony Row" by Jack Bruce, and not just for his bass playing-- I love his composing, singing, piano, organ, cello, harmonica and acoustic guitar, as well.
Zooma - John Paul Jones
Gary Willis, Actual Fiction.
And it' truly is a solo album in the sense that he wrote and programmed all parts with the exception of the drums on certain tracks.
His Retro album is also great and a more traditional album.
Billy Sheehan - Compression
What, no School Days.?.?
I may be a sucker for the classics, but School Days and Jaco's debut album are two of my favorite. The segue from Donna Lee to Come'on Come Over is one of the coolest things ever, and the School Days album is just awesome musicians rippin' sh!t up from the first note to the last.
