    I was listening to some oldies station today in the car and the song "Baby Love" performed by the Supremes came on. Since I switched from guitar to bass about 2 years ago, I really zone in on bass lines, and I was wondering if this is an example of James Jamerson. The bass line was really great - it really had me listening.

    His playing is so relaxed.

    Very relaxed but very centered, too. That's what I appreciate about him the most, even more than the beautiful tone and brilliant syncopations and embellishments.

    ive just picked up a book on james jamerson with most major bass players talking about jamerson. to get his 16th note syncopated bass lines to fit in so well with the music is amazing.
