Ray Brown on Kadota’s Blues

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.
