Ok, Okay, wonder if we could get something going here, who can rock the bass better Marcus Miller or Stanley Clarke although both give mad props to Larry Graham for the thumping and popping. Yeah we know Marcus was Luther’s best friend and played on every Luther record and had complete control of Miles "Tutu" album (although one song was produced by George Duke), but I think Stanley ranks right up there with Marcus. But one has to wonder if Marcus can play straight ahead jazz with the string bass like Stanley can (Teena Marie’s "Cassanova Brown")? A toss-up!!!!

Definitely Stanley Clarke is the better bass player, however, as a producer and all-around multi-instrumentalist session man, I’d have to go with Marcus Miller. In fact we have some Stanley Clarke in the lineup, can’t say when it will drop but it’s in the wings waiting its turn.

I think Stanley may be technically more proficient, but Marcus in my opinion is the better all around musician.
