The late 1960s are described as a magical period, in which bass players with a jazz background laid down the foundation for the electric bass. Funk is the genre that derived from this development. The role of the bass in jazz music will be discussed by Ron Carter and Verdine White (Earth, Wind & Fire). They will take a look at the influence the development of the electric bass has had.
