Surely not even the tuba! :-)

But seriously, I quite agree. It's a real shame that most bassists seem content to thump along boringly (or are made to do so). But perhaps a bigger shame that those who indulge in a more involved approach tend to take it so far that it becomes a distraction.

I tend to think Tony Levin pulls it off though.
