Oscar Pettiford: “The Bird of the Bass”
Listening to this NPR feature on this titan of the bass — close to an hour of distilled Pettiford brilliance — made my week. If you haven’t reflected lately on Pettiford’s place in the development of modern jazz, hear what Ray Brown, Christian McBride have to say about him; and better still, let OP nail it, again and again My advice: set aside a little more time, because, as I did, you might end up listening to this again.

soulmusicsongs:

Bassists are the backbone to any soul and funk track and the bassline has always ruled the dancefloor and we want to celebrate this with a bassline top 10 in soul and funk music

I’m sure we will find more tracks with awesome basslines.Will be continued….
