Jaco Pastorius, is the most innovative bassist of all time. Check out the tune portrait of tracy, it absolutely amazing. Stanley Clark and Ray Brown are also great, but If you have to pick one, Jaco is like the Jimi Hendrix of the bass.

of course, Mingus was the man. but, hey, folks: what about Dave Holland? or, for that matter, Cecil McBee? Reggie Workman? how about Richard Davis? one of the most versatile, skilled bassists ever, to be sure.

You should listen to Stanley Clarke, especially the Return To Forever albums and his solo album Schooldays. Anaother electric jazz bassist is Abraham Laboreal But if you want the grandmaster jazz bassists, they all played uprights.Listen to Ron Carter, Charles Mingus, George Mraz, Eddie Gomez, Percy Heath, Dave Holland.Godd Luck!1LD

Stanley Clarke from Philly in the band Return To Forever that just came off there 60 city tour in the states and in Europe saw the show at the Mann Music Center Aug 5 2008 great show.

Usually I would list a number of great jazz bassists, but in this case I believe that only one needs to be mentioned.Jaco Pastorius.He is THE most amazing electric jazz bassist that ever existed, and most likely, the best that there will ever be.All of his songs are amazing in their own ways, but I’d have to say that my favorite song of his would have to be his cover of The Chicken, with his new Soul Intro. It’s just amazing.

Jaco Pastorius is the greatest jazz electric bassist of all time.he was an innovator. Check out some of his music and take a look at the biography “Jaco” by Bill Milkowski. There is a great album called “Word of Mouth: Revisited” which has some great modern electric bassists (Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Victor Bailey, Jimmy Haslip, etc.) playing his music. Presenting this album to your class would be a very interesting way to incorporate Jaco but show his influence on today’s electric bass virtuosos.

In electric bass -: Jeff Berlin, Victor Bailey, Mark Egan, Marcus Miller, Abe LAboriel, Chuck Rainey, Gary Willis, Miroslav Vitous, Alphonso Johnson, Anthony JAckson, Victor Wooten, Eberhard Weber, Marc Bertaux, Jonas Helborg, Kai Eckhardt, Ralph Armstrong,
