The Deep M.O / Yolanda Charles.

Forget any nonsense classification about 'women bassists', Yolanda Charles is arguably the finest funk bassist in the UK. A remarkable musician with an enviable track record, she took her time getting round to making her own music, but now with the Deep M.O. has a rockin' funk/soul band, with which she sings and plays bass, with her amazing husband Miles Bould on drums. 

Here's their lovely funky EP:

If that wasn't enough, here are two vids of Yo playing a couple of older tunes (from the days when the Deep M.O were caleed MamaYo) completely solo. Lovelovelove these -
