Hi, TBers! First of all Id like to wish you a groovy new year. Better late than never. Lets come to the point. My story with the bass is not too long. Its been only nearly 2 months that I started to take lessons and I am really satisfied with my instructor who is a good jazz bass player as well as being a good instructor. What we have focused upon so far is mainly walking bass. It seems that it will surely get some time to gain fluency. And I am also pretty new to the immense world of jazz. So I would like fellow TBers to provide me with a starting point as to the greatest musicians (doesnt have to be confined only to bass players), recordings, etc. which are considered as one must listen to and know of and give me insight into the world of jazz. (Could they be referred to as "Standards"? I dunno.) My instructors first suggestion was Miles Davis Kind Of Blue. Of course suggestions other than just musicians, recordings etc. are also welcomed. But I would kindly like the content to be limited to jazz only. Hope to make the most out of your suggestions and experiences and thank you in advance. Greetings!
