    Scott Pazera-No Joke, you can listen and check out this Cd at his site, Local Bassist that fronts his own trio, and he also studied with Bill Dickens the Buddaha of the bass! Studing with Scott right now!

    Pantera is the best jazz out there. Theory out the wazzoo.
  8. Is the jazz you are looking for dependent upon the type of bass being played (i.e., electric or upright)?

    If you're looking for great bass playing (as opposed to simply great jazz), here's what I can recommend for upright:

    Bill Evans Trio, Village Vanguard Sessions
    Ron Carter and Jim Hall, Live At The Village West
    Charles Mingus, Blues And Roots

    For electric--just get Jaco's first disc.
