Great Resource for Study & Gigging (8/27/2018)
I wish I had bought this 40 years ago - I'd have been a lot more soulful. It's good for dexterity - both with fingers and with time. When exploring new songs on the set list, I've frequently found the basis for a new line and new ways of interpreting the tune.
One suggestion - many of the patterns are pretty easy on a bass guitar, and HARD on a standup. Howze about doing the same thing for an acoustic bass?

Fun and useful study! (7/12/2009)
This book is packed with useful and fun grooves that will challenge players of all levels. I love the format- basically you can go in order or just open up any page and go- the grooves are all hip enough to stand up in playing situations and can be modified and individualized - this is my favorite bass book out there- pure application material!
