Andy Fraser’s bass playing has already been mentioned. Andy also wrote some great songs, including “Every Kinda People,” which was recorded by Robert Palmer. It has a wonderful, prominent bass part played by Bob Babbitt.

Here’s a demo. I like how the guy can’t keep from smiling.

Wilson Pickett, Funky Broadway featuring Tommy Cogbill on bass. I like to play this one.



King Curtis, Memphis Soul Stew, featuring Jerry Jemmott on bass. Plus Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, Billy Preston - what could be better.

The amazing Bernie Worrell playing the part written for Bootsy (And most everything else other than drums and guitar).
