I would have to say that you must listen to "The Sun Don`t Shine" by Marcus Miller, especially the title track and his tribute to Jacko Pastorious. And if you have never come across Danny Thompsons acoustic bass work, then you should. Hear him with John Martin on the album "Solid Air". Just amazing.

My old favorites are Jack Bruce and John Entwistle, but the Wooten piece linked was impressive. Jack and John made the bass a lead instrument. If you listen to Cream and The Who there are many times when they are playing lead and Eric or Peter are playing rhythm
The freaks stick together, they are a tight old crew

What about Jimi Hendrix, I know he didn't play bass but rhythm and lead with thumb and forefingers, truly talented, his drummer was pretty nifty too.
Steve Harris on Run to the Hills, surely a master of the bass guitar.
Black Sabbath, War Pigs, awesome track.

Has anyone out there heard the Robert Plant and Alison Krauss album ? The band on there are pretty cool, T. Bone Burnett, Marc Ribot etc. and what's the name of the banjo player ? I'd like to hear more of him.

Completely gone off topic, sorry.

One of my favorites going back to the late '60s is Jack Casady, formerly of the Jefferson Airplane many years ago. He and the lead guitarist of that band, Jorma Kaukonen, met in high school and are still playing and touring together today. That makes it over 40 years they've been doing that.

Jack's web site is here. It features a Flash video of a really nice riff he does. The guitarist in the background is most likely Jorma Kaukonen. What strikes me about this riff is not just virtuosity, but also a beautiful melody with much emotion projected into his playing.

Couldn't get that to work, but there is a very nice acoustic piece at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBks7V3SzJo

Not flashy, but very tasteful ... thanks for the pointer about Jack - he does deserve more notice.
