    I think none were mentioned, so I'll add some ladies to the list.

    Esperanza Spalding
    Tal Wlikenfeld
    Linda Oh (Upright... I know the OP asked for electric bassists, but I couldn't talk women bassists without adding Linda)

    Came in to post ^^^this.

    Also check out Mike Pope; he not only designs cool electronics, he plays the hell outta da bass.

  6. If you listen to Jaco Pastorius radio on Pandora there's a lot of these mentioned artists on there.

    Gerald Veasley. I don't know his later work but with Odean Pope and Cornell Rochester he eliminated the need for a chord instrument:
    I went to NYC 2 years ago around Christmas (I recommend it) and saw 2 shows, same guy: Reubin Rodgers was the bass player at both! First on Friday, acc. bass in a jazz club (I was there to see Ingrid Jensen, the trumpet player, who was in the band. He was amazing on acc.) and then on Saturday, classic Fender P with flats playing with Charles Lloyd and Bill Frisell and the Marvels at Lincoln Center. Not flashy with the Marvels but no wrong notes...that band is ridiculous with soloists already...This set is from 2016 2 years prior, I saw them with Lucinda Williams. The drummer Eric Harland is fantastic too, and a band with Greg Leisz on pedal steel guitar...

    I really dig Tony Grey's playing with Hiromi's Sonic Bloom. Anthony Jackson replaced Grey as Hiromi's bassist, and he's of course a monster player, but I'm partial to Grey's style and tone.

    Hiromi's Trio Project w/ Anthony Jackson

    Lovely. I like the combination of fretless bass and pedal steel guitar.

    I think he might be my favorite bassist out there. Incredibly lyrical solos. There's another thread debating "virtuoso" bassists - considering Tony picked up the bass at 19, I'd say he qualifies, hehe.
