Carol Kaye: Boogaloo

Today’s video isn’t really a video, but we don’t care.

This is “Boogaloo,” from Kaye’s Picking UP on the E String album.

    Sounds an awful lot like “On Any Sunday”, also played by Kaye. Both great bass showcases.

  2. A pioneer in the bass world ….LEGENDARY! If ever there should be a comprehensive documentary on an individual musician,Carol Kaye should be right up there.For now,the Wrecking Crew documentary touches on some of her historical moments .
