"Dave Holland Quintet, I caught this act live in Stockholm, it was mindblowing. With one of the most impressing jazz drummers I've heard, Holland is great with his breathtaking solos and grooves."
Stan Getz And The Oscar Peterson Trio
Stan Getz And The Oscar Peterson Trio
"Though I'm not a big Stan Getz fan, I'm a huge Oscar Peterson fan, with bassist Ray Brown. No drummer here, Browns is steady as a rock. This really showed me the art of swing bass."

"Jaco Pastorius again, this time with Joni Mitchell. Jaco is laying down some funky grooves and beautiful melodies. Also, check out the live album Shadows And Light."
Heavy Weather

"Jaco again. One of THE best fusion albums of all time, although some find it overrated. Check out Jaco's own composition Havona and also, A Remark You Made and the bass anthem Teen Town."

"Soul music the way I like to hear it, by the talented Alicia Keys, various bassists on this album. Great soulbass playing, should be carefully listened to for any bassplayer."
