I saw the Ray Brown Trio around '99 or '00.Hum, listening now while writing this. Album Bassics, The Best Of, The Ray Brown Irio, 1977-2000
As some of you know I play Classic Country and a background of Big Band of years ago but right now I'm loving this album of great Jazz. And even more loving the grove. A good bass man friend of mine (one of the better bass players in Austin) is loaning me the album. I may not take it back; LOL!!!
I was working nights in Seattle then and I drove up to a big Starbucks on Capitol Hill.
He was playing with a new drummer who was getting a lot of buzz at the time.
Band knocked it out of the park.
I got to talk with Riggins after the show. Nice kid. Very "down-to-earth".
They released an album of the gig (remember when Starbucks sold CD's?).
