RAY BROWN
OUPPLENESS and ability to hit the ^‘right’ note every time are rare attributes in any bass player. Raymond Matthews Brown, aged 32 has these attributes and others which together make him one of the finest bass players of all time. A follower of Jimmy Blanton, Ray began his musical studies on piano. Early in the 1940’s he joined Dizzy Gillespie and worked with Diz and Parker for some time. After leaving Dizzy he formed his own trio and later married Ella Fitzgerald. Although divorced from her in 1952 he has been featured with her and Jazz At The Philharmonic units almost ever since.
The period of his career which drew most attention to his excellent musicianship was his membership of the Oscar Peterson trio. Together with Oscar and Herb Ellis, he helped make the group that was said to be “ more integrated and swinging than any comparable group.”
To Jazz At The Philharmonic and worldwide acclaim in 14 years, an achievement if ever there was one. Never more deserved than by Ray Brown.

HERB ELLIS
Mitchell Herbert ellis’
sleek, measured line and sound is the perfect complement to Peterson’s percussive piano and Brown’s moving bass. Herb was born in McKinney, Texas, in 1921. He is a graduate of North Texas State College. Herb played with Glen Gray’s Casa Loma orchestra in 1944-45, later joining Jimmy Dorsey, and finally coming into solo prominence as a member of the Soft-Winds, an instrumental-vocal trio. He co-composed several fine tunes, among which are “ Detour Ahead ” and “ I Told Ya I Love Ya Now Get Out,” both recorded by Woody Herman. He has toured with Peterson and “ Jazz At The Philharmonic ” since 1953.
