tommy-cogbillTommy Cogbill

Tennessee bassist Cogbill was one of the true legends of the bass. One of the early pioneers of electric bass he laid down the classic grooves to numerous hits of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Jaco credits him as an influence.

Being a producer, Cogbill had an uncanny ear for what the song needed and was unafraid to dive in with complex bass parts. “Son of a Preacher Man” is a prime example, one of quite a few.

Jaco often quoted his bass line in “Funky Broadway” when he was performing.
