Funk? Funk bass sounds REALLY fun to play on bass, and I don't even play bass

If you want to hear a redonkulous upright bass player, check out Charles Mingus. Lately i've been into Chris Potter Underground, Joshua Redman, and Thelonious Monk. Check out Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, and Sonny Rollins too. I can give you some more names if you need them, but theres a start for you.
