These are a few dynamic and creative bass players I’ve noticed over the years who virtually never get a mention. I wonder why.

Tal Wilkenfeld…Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck

Esperanza Spalding…Solo, Patti Austin, US5

Rhonda Smith…Beyonce, Chaka Khan, Prince

Meshell Ndegocello…Solo, Rolling Stones, Alanis Morissette

Gail Ann Dorsey…David Bowie, Tears for Fears

Kim Deal…Pixies, Breeders

Carol Kaye…Wrecking Crew

Brandi Wynne…Ozric Tentacles

Johnette Napolitano…Concrete Blonde

Tina Weymouth…Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club

No particular order here but there is one thing they all have in common…they are all exceptional bass players.

Heres Tal doing her thing…smooth, tasty, melodic and deadly. Kudos to Jeff and Vinnie for keeping up.
