Sgt. Pepper, remastered.

I haven't heard anything I could particularly point out as a difference. Oh well.

Well, Stu Hamm, Victor Wooten, Jaco Pastorius, et. al. are all great players. It's fairly pointless to argue about "better" and I'm not enough of a student to argue the technical proficiency point. I think there's more to making compelling music than just having chops, but I've never really been an "art for art's sake" kind of guy.

With the exception of Jaco, other modern virtuosos have the distinct advantage of having come AFTER the electric bass was popularized in rock music by Entwistle and others.

There are some musicians in which your point would hold true. I am a big Steve Vai fan for example because of his talent level but overall find his music too cheesy and rarely listen to it. With exception to the song Tender Surrender of course. ;\)
