    Sinister Minister - Bela Fleck & The Flecktones

    Bela Fleck - Possibly my favorite banjo player ever, but there's a lot of good ones
    Victor Wooten - my favorite bass player ever
    Dave Wooten - great drummer, plays a guitar synth controller as well as real drums
    Howard Levy - my favorite harmonica player ever

    That's probably not Jamerson. It's likely Wilton Felder.

    and a billion other threads on the internet. I thought it was Jamerson as well, but it's probably not.
