hi guys. i just recently got into jazz music and i was wondering what kinds of artists you guys would recommend I listen to. I'm really into music with some good bass behind it. one artist i just recently came across is Kyle Eastwood (yeah, clint eastwood's son). such a great bassist with great skill, just like his daddy. if u wanna hear some of his tracks, just go to this myspace @ myspace.com/kyleeastwood. So far i've been listening to kyle, Jaco Pastorius, and Richard Bona. Thanks!

One thing I did to get an idea of the artists that are out there is listen to CBC After Hours. On CBC radio from 10 til midnight out here on the east coast. You won't hear a lot of fusion on the program if that's where your interest lies, but I have discovered lot's of good artists that I would'nt have caught on to if I had to just blindly buy discs. Also FM radio sounds so good at that time of night.

For a some great fusion fretless bass and these guys are Canadian to boot...........get ahold of some UZEB..............Alain Caron is a monster on bass.....so is his bandmate Michel Cusson on guitar.
Hope this helps

You definitely need to check out Victor Wooten. He plays with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. You won't be disappointed. :bow:
Exactly my recommendation. Victor Wooten is amazing. I'm assuming you mean a bass guitar, but if you'd like to hear some stratospheric acoustic double bass, check out "Music for Two" with Bela Fleck and Edgar Meyer.

Cheers,
