Bass Players that are in the pocket

#12900 3 years ago
Posted this in General Discussion but maybe it should be here.

Phil, while an incredible musician and bass player, does not play in the pocket. Which bass players do you think have the most pocket in their playing?

My list:

Billy Bass Nelson, Boogie Mosson and Lige Curry of P-Funk top the list.
Furious E
Joe Lee of Star '69
Richard Smith of Muruga's many bands

All of these are people I have played with several times. Probably due being more aware of the pocket while playing than while listening.

What do you think?
