I'm looking for some music with some prominent bowed upright. Looking for that motherfucker grizzly bear sound.

Hey FL!

Check out Rob Wasserman's "Solo" album. If I remember right There's some on there. If not, there's still some excellent solo bass playing.

Peace & Have A Grateful Day!

Rasputina does the bowed cello thing (2 ladies & a drummer).

Cabin Fever is a good album to start on.

Wood Brothers for sure.

While mostly comedy, Asylum Street Spankers has a lot of really great music and quite a bit features upright bass, bow'd or otherwise.

That 1 Guy does some bow work on his Magic Pipe, dunno if that fits the bill or not but I dig it.

Tony Levin has done some bow work on the bass, both solo and touring with King Crimson.

Umm...Maybe some soul coughing and Estradasphere at times. Estradasphere's bass player is incredible and good at mixing.
