There are a lot of Jazz pieces with great Bass lines but my all time favorite is in another direction all together...

To The End of the World opens with Steve Rodby's bass line,  elegant with a sense of economy & eminently hummable. Along the way there are pivots & key changes but the bass anchors the song as it segues from the main melodic theme & tempo to  keyboard  & guitar interludes, then finally brings the song back home after Metheny's crescendo. It ends as it begins but you are left with the feeling of having been transported elsewhere  only to softly alight. In my imagination this song is an inspiration for couples ice dancing.

If you'd like to be exposed to lots of great bassists in one place check out The Deepest End - Live In Concert, Gov't Mule's 2003 tribute to their late bassist Allan Woody. Guest bassists are Jack Casady, Les Claypool, Jason Newsted, George Porter, Jr., Dave Schools, Roger Glover, Mike Gordon, Paul Jackson, Conrad Lozano, Will Lee, Greg Rzab, Rob Wasserman and Victor Wooten.

@Dnspy007 on Red Barchetta, this part is fantastic... 

 

Suddenly, ahead of me, across the mountainside
A gleaming alloy air-car, shoots towards me, two lanes wide
I spin around with shrieking tires, to run the deadly race
Go screaming through the valley as another joins the chase

Run like the wind
Straining the limits of machine and man
Laughing out loud
With fear and hope, I've got a desperate plan

 

At the one-lane bridge
I leave the giants stranded
At the riverside
Race back to the farm
To dream with my uncle
At the fireside...

All great stuff. I was wondering when Rush and Primus would arrive. Still no Tool? :) 

This classic Police tune gets me every time!

Neil Peart was one hell of a lyricist as well as one of my favorite drummers of all time!

Ok, I’ll bite - Tool’s “Prison Sex” has some kick-ass bass...

 

 

Just the name of that track scares the 5h1+ outta me.

Here’s a track that is BRUTALLY difficult for most systems to get right.  One of my go-to tracks for checking proper bass delivery. If it’s AT ALL boomy or bloated, there’s work to be done - it should come across as tight and punchy, but subtle at the same time. When it’s right, you’ll know...

This one is often suggested for speaker set up as well!

If you're not a baby boomer born in England or in the Philippines, you most likely have never heard of this tune from The Shadows showcasing original bassist Jet Harris.
