The face of Joe Osborn.
I almost mentioned Chris Hillman too. I learned a lot from listening to him.
Fraser. His bass lines just make me happy and make me want to dance. They're joyful really but also cut hard.
My favorite bass player will never be the most technical or skillful bass player in the world. I can respect that, but my favorite bass lines are simple
Has anyone mentioned Mark Egan?
Here is a great live clip with Pat Metheny Group.
MARK EGAN - YouTube
So many choices.
Prakash John's performance with Lou Reed on Rock 'n Roll Animal is high up on my list. That's one that never gets ejected from my car's CD changer.
So *VERY* awesome!!!
Stanley Clarke. Desert Song as well as School Days was on that album I checked out after hearing three different Return To Forever line ups
I guess I’m unique in the sense that I listen to music as a whole; I don’t really emulate any bassists myself. I was heavily influenced by Steve Harris in the beginning.
If I had to pick one bassist-
John Glasscock and here are three reasons:
1. Songs From the Wood
2. Heavy Horses
3. Bursting Out (Live)
So melodic, such a groove.
I posted that first response almost a year ago but I never said why. Sorry it took so long to respond properly!
Tie Jamerson and Duck Dunn
Who is Tie Jamerson?
He’s new ...hot player. I should wear my glasses should of wrote ....A Tie between James Jamerson and Duck Dunn.
Yeah dude I heard you were great
Yeah I like that Tie Jamerson guy he has a good sound
Hey bud are you serious Verdine was and is one of the great funksters of all time!
John Patitucci is probably best for me. He has everything: expression, tone, musicality. He played lots of music genres - he can swing, groove, rock. He is amazing on 4 and 6 strings bass guitar, he kills double bass. His career is crazy, he played with bast jazz musicians in the world and still goes on.
I played in the opening band for Pat Travers back in the day at a Seattle club and Mars was rockin' on the bass! He had the first Genz Benz? rig I ever saw or heard of and sounded great with his rose neck "P" talked afterwards and dude was humble and did not consider himself a great player
Folks who pick up an instrument and use it in a way that's never been done impress the heck outta me. So my favorite guy is probably Michael Manring with his eBowing and hipshot detuners on every string and using those to retune his bass 60 times or more mid-song. That's just like.... wow! Who thinks of that?
And now some of the youtube kids like Zander Zon and even guitar players like Alexander Misko are following in his footsteps.
I know. But I considered him "pop" compared to some of the more progressive and jazz musicians who were more appreciated around here.
