+1 for Kate Bush

But, for me, the female singer (and songwriter) who still leaves everyone standing:
JONI MITCHELL
(bass players: mainly Jaco Pastorius, Larry Klein)

Cheers,
Steve

If you've not heard it, check out Big Yellow Taxi (2007) from the album 'Shine'

(comment on youtube: "...there is actually no guitar on this song.
All of the instruments you can hear come from the Yamaha Motif synthesiser
(including that driving guitar riff which is a patch called 'Latin Jam'...")

Many excellent femme vox mentioned above (though, imho, they still don't come close to Joni!)
But another fave of mine, not yet mentioned, is ANNIE LENNOX.
Various bass players including at times producer Stephen Lipson.

Karen Carpenter (bassist - no idea), the girls from ABBA (bassist Rutger Gunnarsson), Stevie Nicks (bassist in Fleetwood Mac John McVie, although her solo albums feature others), and another vote for the wonderful Kate Bush.

Janis Joplin and Joni Mitchell.

With a bit of Laura Nyro, Kate Bush, Sinead O'Connor, Bjork, Judy Collins and Mamma Cass thrown in...

Bass player? Hmm... Jaco is a def fave.... So many to choose from though!

Well, of the famous ones, probably Diana Krall, Judith Owen, Belinda Carlisle & Jane Weidlin.

But my personal faves are one of the singers who works for me from time to time, Nicki Allan from Leeds (Have a listen to her at www.myspace.com/outtoplayjazz ) & Anita Wardell. Look up Anita on myspace or iTunes. Her scatting voice is something else! The bass player in both cases, from time to time has been me :)
