Carol Kaye: Slick Cat (1971)

Wow, this one groooooooves.

Bassist Carol Kaye shared this tune, saying “Slick Cat [was] cut 1971 with Joe Pass [on guitar], Paul Humphrey [on] drums ….we were just jamming some in a studio and decided to work together after this!”

Carol also mentioned that while the bass in the picture is her Gibson Ripper, the bass she used in the recording was a Fender Precision.

Listen. Listen twice.
