  1. I'm looking for a CD thats is predominetly a bassist' spotlite. The type of playing I'm looking to hear is Complex/Technical Jazz type playing. Thats my style at least. A good album with nice tension n' release -Meaning, some technical/complex parts, really off timming, then a nice easy groove to release into. anyone????

    I've really been dying to hear this.

    the only album I have is Gary Willis' Bent. I like it, but I'm just looking for more.

    Preferable Modern style, electric bass. No Upright...
     
  2. Hm...Check out some Abraham Laboriel stuff, everything he has is great.

    Wow... this actually covers a lot of ground. For one... do a search, look in the "greatest bassists" threads or whatever. Because there are actually quite a few bassists that fit the bill.

    Uhh... Victor Wooten? ;)

    Here's one you may or may not like the band he's in Lars (something Sweedish as hell) from a band called Spiral Architect. Very tech/prog metal, his tone is very growl (I think that's why I thought of him... your name) but he is all over. And so are the guitars/drums it gets pretty chaotic sometimes, and for me is just an occasional listen. Mostly due to the vocals though... so 80s.

    Right on. Not to derail the thread, but is he a bassist that is insanely great in the role of a bassist, or in the role of a soloist? Because flashy chops don't do it for me as of late. I ask it interact with other instruments in a polyphonic/rhythmic manner.

    you mean like a large percentage of the fusion stuff of the last 30-40 years?

    I'm closing this one since you posted it here and in recordings.
