    Mincer covered it pretty well, the root is usually covered well by other instruments, especially bass, and is strongly implied by the progression or cadence. The 5th is the next least significant, for pretty much the same reasons, it is strongly implied, except, again, as mentioned, it is a diminished 5th in which case it can be needed to state the diminished-ness. But, again, if you are playing with keys or multiple other instruments, it is probably being played, in a 3 piece, it can be pretty important since the bass is probably covering the root. HTH!

      As a bass player in a three piece, I should check all this out.
