BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!: TED BROWN / MICHAEL KANAN / MURRAY WALL / TARO OKAMOTO: Hotel Kitano, Jan. 12, 2011

This posting came about because at JAZZ LIVES, we take our mission seriously.  And when a trusted reader wrote in just an hour ago to say, “I was at Ted’s gig at the Kitano — it was one of the great evenings of jazz I remember.  Do you think you could post another couple of the swinging tracks?  He swung that night!”

Nothing simpler.  With pleasure!

Thank you, dear reader, and dear gentlemen of the ensemble.

  1. Looks like Murray is getting that huge sound on his bass without an amplifier, and that his bass is strung with gut strings and high action. This is an old-school setup that was very common before 1957. Jack Lesberg told me that this was the year that most of the bassists in NY and elsewhere switched to the more nasal sounding metal strings in order to sound like Ray Brown. The old-school setup allows bassists like Murray to play with a stronger pulse and swing harder, as Murray does.
