CS 100 GREATEST BASS

CS 100 GREATEST BASS PLAYERS 95 97 99 Mick Karn A singular voice of unparalleled originality, the self-taught Karn brought an alien otherness to the art-rock band Japan and other projects, not only on fretless bass but also low-end woodwinds. Perhaps nothing captures his joyous strangeness better than the cultfavorite collaboration Dali’s Car (1984)—with songs like the title track, you might swear that Karn learned to play on another planet. 96 Ron Baker Baker and drummer Earl Young were the heartbeat of Philadelphia International Records at famed Sigma Sound Studios, working with such producers and artists as Gamble & Huff, Thom Bell, the O’Jays, the Spinners, and the Stylistics. Known for deadening the flatwounds on his Fender Precision with masking tape, Baker issued creative, melodic, deep-pocketed lines on hits like “Bad Luck” and “The Love I Lost.” 98 SANDARAC BASSES Walter Page As a member of the Count Basie Band, Walter Page (1900–1957) refined 4/4 walking bass. The “All- American Rhythm Section” with Basie on piano, Freddie Green on rhythm guitar, drummer Jo Jones, and Page was the first well-known rhythm section. We honor Page as a master of swing bass playing who continues to lay down quarter-notes in our collective memory. 100 STONEFIELDMUSIC Bob Moore The pioneering Nashville acoustic bassist played on 17,000-plus sessions beginning in the ’50s— including seminal sides like as Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” and Brook Benton’s “Rainey Night In Georgia.” Moore innovated subtle syncopations and melodic moves that forever changed the face of country bass, while his use of G and D gut strings with A and E steel strings for a more uniform sound more was widely copied. Leroy “Slam” Stewart Leroy “Slam” Stewart (1914–1987) boasted a career as a solid rhythm section bassist, a popular singing talent, a movie personality, and an innovator of jazz bowing on the double bass. When playing solos, Stewart sang an octave above his arco lines. With his ethereal solo sound and deeply swinging rhythm, Stewart played an important role in the stylistic transition from swing to bebop. Percy Jones Inspired by Charles Mingus—and separate from early '70s jazz-rock fusion contemporaries such as Jaco and Alphonso Johnson— Percy Jones discovered the freedom of a fretless fingerboard, developing a highly original voice on his fretless Fender Precision. Percy’s propulsive, percussive style reached global ears via Brand X, and he has continued to innovate on numerous collaborative and solo projects. BP 46 bassplayer.com / february2017
