The Greatest Bass Player You Probably Have Never Heard Of
Some of you may not even know who Carol Kaye is but she has worked with several legendary musicians like Sam Cooke, The Beach Boys, and Ray Charles. She was hardly given any credit but you’d be surprised just how much her contribution is to your favorite songs.
“I’ve played on so many incredible records and worked with such fabulous artists… You know how it is: You turn on the radio and you hear something and you go, ‘Oh yeah! I played on that. That’s a good tune. It got to be a routine after a while,” she says, “but it wasn’t like we were making doughnuts. We were making records, and a lot of them were hits. How many people can go home and say, ‘Yeah, I played with Frank Sinatra today’ or ‘We cut a cool track for The Beach Boys this afternoon’? Not many, I imagine.” – Carol Kaye
You have to love her dedication and passion. After all, her career spanned for more than five decades and even among bass gods, she is a legend. And that says a lot about her talent and skill.
