RAY BROWN JR. QUARTET
How do you forge your own musical destiny when your mother is Ella Fitzgerald, dubbed the “first lady of song,” and your father is Ray Brown, one of jazz’s pre-eminent bassists for over half a century? If you’re Ray Brown Jr. you take the legacy God gave you and run with it. It’s not easy following in the footsteps of famous parents, especially when you enter “their territory”, but Ray has demonstrated that he’s his own man in a classy, almost understated way. With his new SRI Jazz recording, “Friends And Family,” Ray proves to be a more than worthy standard-bearer for the royal legacy his name evokes. Though he grew up inundated with jazz, he didn’t automatically fall under its sway, opting instead to indulge his passion for rock and rhythm and blues.
