My favorite piece of bass is from "Chameleon" by Herbie Hancock off of the album Head Hunters. "Watermelon Man" off of that same album has some pretty bad arse bass as well.
eta:"Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant" by Return to Forever off of the album Romantic Warrior has some pretty good bass as well. Stanly Clark
eta2: Probably some of the most technically impressive bass playing out there is on "Sinister Minister" by Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. Victor Wooten isn't for everybody, but he's impressive no matter who you are.
