ray brown video ??

Discussion in 'Bassists [DB]' started by bill macleod, Apr 5, 2002.

  1. i read a post on another list about a series of videos featuring ray brown with john clayton, milt hinton and francoise rabbath. i believe it's called "the art of playing the bass"
    this sounds like a great series. does anyone know anything about these tapes? eveything i've found on line is a dead end.
    thanks bill

    Just so as not to start another thread when an old one will do: Last night I saw a film called "Dizzy Gillespie: Jivin' in Bebop" on a DVD from Netflix. I think it's pretty well known among jazz historians. It's a variety show with Gillespie's big band playing 6 or so tunes, and accompanying a variety of great dancers, including Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. But I was surprised to see them do "One Bass Hit" with extensive (but short) soloing by Ray Brown who looks about 20 years old. The camera does close ups on him playing about 4 times, and he is using the old one finger technique in his right hand.

    The Ray Brown videos are now available from Lemur Music. I got all 4. I like the Milt Hinton one the best and then maybe the Performance or the rabbath one. The John Clayton one is nice but I think it's more geared towards beginner players.
