An interesting track would be Gordian Knot - Arsis (two-minute fretless bass solo). And you might wanna check out Stuart Hamm, too.

I quite like Leftfield's 'one more hit' (from the Trainspotting soundtrack) The bass line at the begining is right above/below the xo point and can easily show up badly set levels.

The lower bass notes should sound as defined as the higher ones.

I'm partial to most anything by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Bassist Victor Wooten is an amazing bass player, a big part of the sound of the group, and his bass is always pretty prominent in the mix. Particular tracks - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo (from the album of the same name), or the solo bass version of Amazing Grace from Live Art.

Track should be called 'a final hit'

I'd second the Flecktones. Norah Jones HOB DVD has some "mixed hard" standup bass in it too...

The Who is a good band to evaluate bass - when you realize that it was a band with a lead bass and a rhythm guitar, things start to fall into place.

Don't forget the Bass Mekanik stuff. I've got Quad Maximus, and you can hurt things with it.

"This One's For Blanton," Duke Ellington and Ray Brown. This is real acoustic music, so there is a right and wrong. When the subwoofer is right, the piano and bass have distinct percussive attack that "feels" more natural. Too much whomp and the piano and bass both bloat distressingly. Too lean and you lose the feel of the attack, especially on pounded chords.

The new Bruce Cockburn instrumental CD ("Speechless") has a couple of excellent tracks for deep musical bass. Great CD.

My fav is by Billy Sheehan. NV4 3345. Awsome bass solo. The entire song is just Billy on the bass.
