    I tend to get hung up on my favorite records and just end up listening to the same stuff over and over again, but realize there's a whole world of slick multiple bass or bass-centric recordings I've been unaware of... and I recon it's time to change that!

    Rufus Reid/Michael Moore - "Doublebass Delights"

    Ray Brown/John Clayton - "Super Bass"

    Dave Holland - "One's All"

    NHOP/Sam Jones - "Double Bass"

    May I trouble you lot to hip me to other recordings in a similar vein?
