It is estimated that between 1930 and 1995, Milt Hinton performed on more than 900 jazz recording sessions. In addition, especially during the '50s and '60s, he made at least as many records that featured hundreds of non-jazz performers, not to mention countless jingles and film and television soundtracks.
This list of representative solos by Milt Hinton as a sideman in a variety of settings throughout his career is not definitive. He was such a consistent soloist that one could cite many other equally accomplished performances. In some cases, particularly from the 1930s, when bass solos were relatively rare, the recordings listed contain prominent bass accompaniment.
