Ray Brown on Piano Jazz

Ray Brown

  Double bass player Ray Brown (1926 – 2002) moved to New York in 1945 and immediately became part of the jazz scene. He worked extensively with the Oscar Peterson Trio, Jimmy Rowles, and Ella Fitzgerald, to whom he was married. He was one of the leading bassists in the bop style and was known for the precision of his playing and the beauty of his tone. In this 1996 session, Brown and McPartland play “Embraceable You” and “Like Someone in Love.”
