Bob Magnusson remains one of the most respected jazz and classical bassists working today. His extensive studio work, making jazz recordings, television spots, film scores, and jingles, includes a personal discography in excess of 150 albums and CDs. Leonard Feather of the Los Angeles Times wrote: "His solos are models of creative, spontaneous artistry. His tone is full, rich and consistent; he is one of those masters who can achieve effortlessly any phrase that comes to his mind. His basic function as a rhythm player is fulfilled no less resourcefully when the others solo".
