I haven't heard a bass really sing a melody the way a sax or vocal or trumpet or a wailing guitar can... The stuff I've really been impressed by (not technically) is generally in its rhythym or its groove, more percussive than melodic, although I really dig Portrait of Tracy. I was wondering if someone could direct me to examples of a bass singing melodies sweet and dynamic like the aforementioned instruments sometimes do. I hope I'm making some sense... I do not have a huge collection of music but I really love like "Embraceable You" done by Charlie Parker or Cannonball Adderley's playing with Miles Davis... the closest I've heard on bass is Jaco playing "Bright Size Life". I guess I feel like I haven't heard bass that's just mindblowingly sweet and dynamic and melodic, and I wish to, since I love the bass. Thanks!
