    Hey guys, do you have any recommendation for cool crossover double bassist?

    I'm looking for some cool recordings played by double bass player with those essences such as jazz, rock, alternative, progressive, dub etc.

    Thank you!:bassist:

    I wouldn't call Charnett Moffett crossover, but he does some very modern stuff that you might dig. Worth checking out for sure.

    Can't find a YouTube at the moment with the stuff I'm thinking of, but I didn't look very long either.

    I wouldn't call him a crossover either- but HOLY COW!!! What a freaking BAD A55!!! The "Net Man" album danged near tore my head off the first time I heard it! His solo on "Swing Bass" KILLS!!! The whole album gets it! Worth a spin if you can find a copy...

    Christian McBride. You'll find everything from straight ahead ("Inside Straight") to fusion ("Vertical Vision") to his work with Sting.

    Avishai Cohen. Start with any of the following: At Home, Continuo, or Gently Disturbed. He's got all the elements you mention thrown together in a very eclectic and interesting way.

    Thanks dudes. Totally killed by Avishai Cohen!!! I tend to be kinda inspired by this type of artistic musician rather than technique-oriented bassists. Please keep me posted if guys happen to find cool one!
