I would name a lot of the guys above to my top ten list. If I was naming a jazz player I would go for Dave Holland. He has played all types of music from Miles to bluegrass. Check out the stuff he has done with Norman Blake and Vassar Clements.
The second guy I would name who I feel is always overlooked in any bass best of discussions is Jack Cassidy. I do not know why is does not have a better reputation in the bass world. I would be interested to know what others thought.
