Ray Brown Bass Transcription - "Pennies from Heaven"
YES! This is the Ray Brown I love. Years before James Jamerson who, as one man puts it, was the "Schoenberg" of simple chord changes, there was Ray Brown. (Btw, check out Jamerson's bass line on "I Was Made to Love Her" set to motion graphics at notreble.com... crazy cool!) Listen to how Ray Brown keeps the bass line interesting by varying his note and rhythmic choices as the song moves on. Not to say he doesn't repeat himself, but even on Page 1, measures 9-10 and 25-26 both
