Shortly after I started playing jazz bass lines I was introduced to the sounds of Ray Brown and I have never fully recovered from his wonderful bass lines. He is one of my main influences on upright.
I transcribed this bass line a number of years ago when I was still trying to figure out how to construct walking bass lines. I have posted it here in its original form, mistakes and all.
Bass Player – Ray Brown
Album – Oscar Peterson – The Sound Of The Trio
Here is the PDF of a great walking bass line by Ray Brown. Hope you enjoy it!
