I can think of any solos off the top of my head 😕

I presume you meant 'can't' but still you post that? Do you commentate on all your thoughts?

Go over to the 'favorite fretless albums' forum and post your fretted favourites...

If anyone is interested I still have the Spotify playlist (in my signature) everyone can add their own fave songs to. It's seriously missing some great fretless bass and bass solos! Add away! :)

Glenn Cornick's solo on Bouree is great. Very tasteful, with some interesting chordal work. Glenn knew his stuff.

This. It has the great distinction of being musical, as a good solo should be. Technical or difficult? Who cares, its music, you listen to it and either like it, or not.

always loved Bobby Vega

Oh yes! He can play one note and make it sound classy, tuneful and, just.... "right". Awesome player :heart:

Not sure what to think about anyone having a favorite bass solo. Let alone two. Get out there and enjoy life is my best thought for you.

No thread would be complete without a gratuitous mention of Colin Hodgkinson. I've been listening to this man for 45 yeqrs and I still have no real clue how he does it!

Bootsy... solo starts at 5'45"...

Wow..! A first, for me; a real, live, 'Bootsy' solo..! Wow..! It's my fault, I suppose; I thought he was good, from all the spiel I'd read. Never mind, I'll know better next time (except there'll be no next time. Once is far more than enough...). ^_^

I'm sorry but that left me cold, apart from having all of the pedals on at once there isn't really much in the way of playing going on.

Ok not strictly a short solo in a song. But...Without doubt this from Victor is just an incredible solo/cover of Earth Wind and Fire's classic. . Obviously he's recorded 2 parts, the solo part using a filter of sorts.. The whole song is just musically fabulous bass playing from him.. The master at work Imo..

Gino Vannelli album title track Brother to Brother featuring Jimmy Haslip on bass. Love the bass tone and the technique is phenomenal on this one.

The musicianship throughout this particular album is 2nd to none. More recent bassist Sandin Wilson who also plays 6 string bass these days does a fantastic version of this song too.

Incognito. Julian Crampton..Jacobs Ladder.  Ive seen him play this live on an F Bass and it was flawless.

Randy HOPE Taylor's solo on this is just amazing. Starts at 2,40. the perfect finger style mixed with slap and the double stop pop. Just an incredible bass player. Imo.

In these situations I always recommend a bit of Stephen Amazing - starts just after 2:00 - and played with a plec!

Another 'not a fan' of bass solos. But if it's an integral part of a song I'm good with that. I see Manring's 'The Enormous Room' has already been posted, which is beautiful, so I'll go with this one... solo is from about 3.40, but it only works for me in the context of the whole tune.
