Yeah, yeah, I know - there are probably a bajillion of these on the upright board, but what about us primarily (or solely) electric players? Who are your favorite upright players? My personal fave is Ron Carter. Being a funk freak, I really dig the stuff he does with Freddie Hubbard on Red Clay and Straight Life. Stanley Clarke is also one of my faves - I have a DVD of a 70s performance of his in which he plays upright on a few tunes and it is mind-blowing, to say the least. Also dig Patitucci quite a bit - he's one of my favorite all-around players and I saw him with Shorter's quartet last year. He's amazing to watch/listen to.
