He was extremely influential too.

Hmmmmmmm, Good thread. <br><br>Chris Wood is amazing, whether he's laying down a groove or soloing. <br><br>Marc Friedman of The Slip is reinventing the fretless IMO. He has worked out some incredibly original basslines, and his solos are often funky and often indescribably beautiful. He can bring you to tears with a solo if he so wishes. <br><br>Les Claypool<br>Ron Carter<br>Alphonso Johnson<br>Jaco<br>Oteil<br><br>I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Paul Jackson yet. He laid down some of the funkiest basslines of all time. Outrageously original. <br><br>

Mr. Sting?   ;)<br><br>well, everyone has been mentioned, but  I have to mention Paz Lenchantin (formerly of A PErfect Cirlce)  I saw her play bass for Papa M recently, which is sorta like a folk-rock group, though they did a cover of the Misfits song, Skulls, and the 20 minute jame that persisted afterwards was amazing.  She is the best female bassist I've ever seen live.

But after Herbie Hancock's records at the beginning of '70s what he has done further ? I am not informed, personally. Though I admired his funky basslines and I also spent a lot of time to write them for me to study, I cannot place him at the very top of my list

I think it's ironic that three of my top ten Grateful Dead tunes feature Phil Lesh Vocals:<br><br>Box of Rain<br>Pride of Cucamonga<br>Unbroken Chain.

Whoever that was playing on 50/50 is outrageous. Who was that??

Go back and look again. By my count Les Claypool got 8 mentions on this thread alone, and many more on some ealier similar threads.

I love the bass on "The Black Page #2" on an album called "The Dangerous Kitchen". (And that might be the name of the band.)
