Subject: RE: Best Bassist
The bass has a well-defined role in emsemble musicianship, and the greatest bass players, to my mind, are great not because they play the bass as some kind of bastardized "lead instrument," but because they have found unique ways to maximize the contribution of their instrument in its proper role as an element of a performance's foundation.
