O.K.VICTOR WOOTEN and HERE is a bassman who always comes out on top when talking about bassmen that BARTLETT admires. This video 'Victor Wooten Bass Lesson [thank s ]' is I think [Jan, of course] one of Wooten's finest. I know it's about an hour long...BUT, it's fun and you'll know how to play like a pro....Steve and I just watched the whole video after watching some videos of Victor Wooten's Bass Solos. I'll post them below. O.K? This was our favorite and has amazing performances with the BASS instruction.
BARTLETT learns alot from Wooten and watches him every chance he gets.
To me [Jan] Steve sounds like a combination of JACO PASTOROUS/VICTOR WOOTEN and STANDLEY CLARKE....O.K.That brings up the question 'Who's Who in Bass'? So, I'm re-posting an earlier story of mine about great bassmen...Enjoy. Jan-

Clarke made many albums with others and solo albums too, and, in the '70's, his album called 'School Days' full album, [thanks Jimmy Jammer] is one of the most famous bass solo recordings of all time. So, here's a short list of the best, in my humble opinion, I know, I know there's more fantastic bass people, but, I can't think of them right now, so here's my list for just today...the best bassists of all time... Let's see, there's JACO PASTORIUS and HERE, ROCCO PRESTIA, RICHARD BONA and HERE,MARCUS MILLER and HERE, VICTOR WOOTEN [link above], TAL WILKENFELD, RICK LAIRD, and HERE, BARTLETT ON BASS [smile], DONALD DUCK DUNN and HERE and of course STANLEY CLARKE Can you think of any others?...Wait a minute, I just thought of someone else...there was this really good bass lady, who I saw and heard performing with STEVIE WONDER and HERE on a video once. Who was she? I'll try to find her. I never forget names I always know right now......just a moment please. Jan
