(2.2002) Ray Brown was the most recorded bassist in the history of jazz. He spent many years with Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson, amongst many others.Ray passed away summer of 2002. I was playing a concert in Chicago and Ray was at Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase. Donald Meade, a mutual friend of ours, invited me to come join he and Ray after his gig. Unfortunately, I could not make it...Ray passed away the next week in Indianapolis.This photo taken after his trio concert with Geoffrey Keezer and Karriem Riggins at Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland, CA. ©2005 ITMS
