    Didn't know if this has ever been posted here... But here's a great video of Ray Brown playing Black Orpheus at his 75th b-day concert. I hope I have chops like that at 75! Amazing sound and playing from a master...what a SOUND. Also, one thing about his technique that is interesting is his extensive use of his RH first finger, even for somewhat faster lines. He uses a bit of a wrist bounce of sorts to facilitate the quicker notes I think when he's just using the one finger.
