    Nah; Scott LaFaro died in July 1961 shortly after recording the Village Vanguard sessions. The bassist in that video is Chuck Israels.
    Great clip though.

    It's from '65 so it's not Scott. Looks like Chuck Israels to me. He would have been Bill's bass player around that time.

    Ah, thanks. Didn't look like him but I wasn't sure, and I didn't think to look at the dates. Brain fog.

    Great video though, isn't it?
