    I'm personally not good at playing uptempo (walking) so for the past 3 months I've been getting really into it and putting it into my practice sessions. I'm wondering what are some crazy fast recordings of tunes where the band is killing. I've been listening to the Miles record Four & More with So What, Walkin, and Joshua. All three are crazy.

    This is pretty good... and it has a very good DB solo in it also

    Burnin means fast in this context :)

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    OK, good luck with that. Since you didn't seem to find the items posted of any use I went ahead and deleted it.

    This has to be on the list:

    Buddy Rich with Sammy Davis, Come Back to Me

    Anyone know where I might find the parts for this arrangement?

    Good tip! I was hoping to play it sooner, but if not, when I get there I'll check with him.

    if you're talking strictly about tempo, for me the main thing would be to listen to alot of bebop (particularly parker, dizzy, and bud powell). tommy potter's ability to walk at those tempos without letting up for so long is just amazing, but he doesn't get the respect that i think he deserves. other bassists to listen to for uptempo walking are nhop and eddie gomez. i really like eddie gomez's walking in particular, because his tone is so bright and he makes great use of ghost notes to help it swing harder.

    also check out some early coltrane (russian lullaby and countdown in particular), 2nd miles davis quintet (four and more like you mentioned, and also the plugged nickel box set), jaco (invitation off the birthday concert is ridiculous), nhop and joe pass, art blakey, and clifford brown and max roach. and mr bungle and naked city if you're weird.

    i don't know if i've heard any straight ahead jazz faster than this:


    as far as really fast, intense playing, but not necessarily fast tempos, i would check out eric dolphy, coltrane again, scott lafaro (my favorite bassist personally), dave holland (check out global citizen), freddie hubbard, and oscar peterson.

    I'm sorry I wasn't able to listen to them. I was just clarifying my meaning. If you post them again I have time to listen to them today. Sorry for confusion.

  12. There is a Kenny Baron trio with Dave Holland on Enja, a couple real fast ones from Bernie Wallace in the 80s. There is a moment when cocaine and amplifiers became the order of the day - horrendous tones but some super fast walking! Check out Arild AndersonMolde Concert, too!

  13. Pre-amp I'd go with Sonny Dallas on Lee Konitz' Motion and the original Henry Grimes on either Don Cherry quartet, Complete Communion or Where's Brooklyn?

    Also this one. They get going on the head.


    There's an early recording of Jimmy Raney doing Cherokee in Paris that's absolutely ripping but I can't find it on Youtube.

    Some of these recordings, sometimes it seems like they can't get the notes out fast enough. I prefer the stuff where they're in total control and the phrases come out easily.

    Michael's post reminded me of this one, with a very young RH. Curtis Lundy.

    My favorite thing about that video might be Victor's shirt.

    Seriously though, i remember Kenny Washington saying that Curtis from that time had the best feel at that tempo, K-Wash not a man who gives it up very easily or often
