You might think it's not much of an honor to be recognized as the last in this list, but think about it. How would YOU like folks to say you're one of the 100 best bassists in the world? Shoot, I'd be happy to be in the top 1000 or so! Anyway, the folks at Bass Player Magazine, who compiled this list tagged Mr. Jones for this spot.
Here's a teaser: "Percy Jones’ elastic fretless bass guitar concept is one of a kind. His combination of harmonics, glissando, vibrato, and three-finger right-hand techniques has enabled him to tell thrilling stories through his instrument across a diverse career.
Jones is best-known for his work as a co-founder of the revered British jazz-rock group Brand X, which reunited in 2016 after a 17-year break. His session work also graces some of the most important albums made during the ‘70s and ‘80s. He partnered with Brian Eno on three pioneering recordings—1975’s Another Green World and 1977’s Before and After Science, and 1980’s Eno and Jon Hassell collaboration Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics. In addition, Jones has recorded with the likes of Richard Barbieri, Fovea Hex, Steve Hackett, Roy Harper, and David Sylvian."
