Indeed,really never gets the credit he deserves.But being a bass player myself it's good to know just about every bass player I have talked to respects his ability.

 No real faves among bassists, but a fave bassist tune is Villa-Lobos's "Little Train," by Niels Henning Orsted-Pedersen, whereon he plays melody & guitarist Philip Catherine plays rhythm. It's a joy & goes on for 10+ min.

Seems there are several low end players on the board.  :)

That's cool you know about Philip Catherine. Great guitarist. I have an Alphonse Mouson album he plays on. He also plays fretless guitar

I think that Flea is the best bass player extant.

 

I like John Entwisle, Donald Dunn, Jack Casady and Cliff Burton. 

 

I learned music on a trumpet (b-flat cornet) in the mid 60's) but self taught myself on an electric bass. I wasn't that good, however I had fun trying.

I have noted to my friends that there are literally hundreds of outstanding guitarists, but you can count bass players on like one hand. I am a HUGE fan of Jack Casady, and I don't see how you can talk about bass without talking about Jack Bruce. But the godfather of the instrument (talking specifically rock and roll) has to be Thunderfingers:

 

I hope this link works

I am impressed that you are familiar with Niels Henning Orsted-Pedersen.

One of my favorite bass lines of all time.

The solo in the middle is especially sweet.

He seems to be a master at all techniques. Funk is practically silly these days but he turns the whole thing up several notches. Good tapper as well.  My chiming is awful but these videos give a great unhampered view of fingering and execution.

Love Jack Casady and don't really know why he hasn't gotten more credit than he has. He brought jazz to rock which may be why he's often overlooked.  Not many players crossed the line between rock and jazz until Fusion and that wasn't rock so much either.
