Jazz walking bass lines recently appeared at bopland.org. Here are some of my experiments with their search engine:

So, it gives you examples of licks to play over a series of changes basically? I'm failing to see any real benefit in this. It would make much more sense to me to transcribe lines if I wanted examples. That's much more beneficial.

And to be honest, the couple of lines I listened to weren't too hot.

Hmm your trying to make a walking bass. Have you tried asking a machines forum we deal with the basses not the walking bits.

Really though... Thanks
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

Thanks for posting those links and for the comments.

The lines at bopland.org have been accurately transcribed from recordings by Niels Pedersen, Chris Brubeck, Eddie Gomez, Bob Maize, Ron Carter, Ray Brown, Sam Jones, etc. They were not generated automatically. If you don't like some of them that probably means you don't like the style of a particular bassist. If you hate any of those lines, please let us know about it using the feedback form at http://bopland.org/feedback.html and we consider deleting them.

The MP3 files were generated for those users who are not familiar with standard notations. They don't give an idea how the lines should sound live.

If you have any further comments or suggestions please let us know. It will only make the project better. If you are sure the idea about walking lines is a low point of bopland.org or you know how to elaborate it, let's discuss it.
