C/P'd from the PA Shred...stands even with Ron added in.  I just absolutely love the soul and swing of Mingus.  The other two have played on/recorded some absolutely phenomenal albums as well, and of course they both play one of teh best instruments ever Cool but Mingus is THE MAN.

Carter is probably the best bassist of the three, but I voted for Mingus for all-around greatness.

I went to Mingus. His contribution was grand. I checked "Jazz at Massey Hall" again recently accidentally.

All three are different and each has lot of great moments. Like early Holland's works for experimentation, but best Mingus albums are real masterpieces

Graham CollierBig smile (only him can rival to Mingus)
 
 
This kind of pôll is fairly unfair, IMHO
 
How can one put Mingus (who's in a class of his own, especially in the composition dept) compared to two accompanying bassists like Cartyer and Holland... don't get me wrong, Ron & Dave were quite good and even made a few "solo" or leader albums that are worthy.... But nothing of the stature of Mingus
 
 
 
my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicted musicians to crazy ones....

As much as I love Mingus, and his compositional powers are pretty hefty, I voted RC for his versatility perhaps. And also a little because I felt like he was missing out with 0 votes at one stage
