If you're gonna go that far then definitely check out Jimmy Blanton.
He basically invented walking bass. For swing, I think his feel
absolutely can't be topped. Seriously, over PC Ray Brown, Oscar
Petiford. If you are interested in the role of bass as a rhythm
section instrument (as opposed to a super-chops/soloist) then it's
good idea to check out some drummers/great-rhythm-sections.
