Ray Brown: Teen Town
As I’ve mentioned several times on this site, I’m a huge Ray Brown fan. He set the standard for jazz bass, and while he could get funky from time to time, he never strayed too far from the straight-ahead. That’s why I was blown away to find this recently unearthed video of him performing the classic Weather Report song, “Teen Town.”
Brown makes the original Jaco Pastorius bass line seems easy on the double bass as he plays to an appreciative crowd.
