Text From Carol Kaye’s Facebook Post (shown below):
“I highly recommend the fine Steve Bryant, excellent lifelong teacher, and top studio bass player in Nashville for all lessons online…..he’s taken over my students and is doing a great job. For guitarists, I highly also recommend Robert Conti, as the best in teaching improv and chordal playing for standards and Jazz.……you can also buy my books and courses, but wanted to stress these fine teachers when you’re ready, Thank-you, Carol Kaye Please note, this is an older pic, I don’t use that gear anymore.”
A Very Special Thank You To Carol Kaye From Robert Conti
Those outside of the music business may not recognize her name. However, if you’ve listened to popular music on radio or recordings, or you’ve watched successful TV series and major motion pictures since the 1960’s, you may be assured that you’ve heard her stellar performing skills on all of those sound tracks on the radio or on numerous motion pictures. As well documented, Carol’s creative skills, i.e. (signature bass lines, intros etc.) caused her to dominate the great super player rhythm sections of the Hollywood Recording Studios in the 1960’s, as the first call session bassist of the ’60s. As a minute sampling, Carol’s in demand skill, is heard on major productions from luminaries such as: Quincy Jones, Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin, Michel LeGrand, Barbra Streisand, Lou Rawls, Glen Campbell, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, The Beach Boys, Ray Charles et al. Indeed, her credits could fill a Los Angeles telephone directory, as documented, her recording credits are well in excess of Ten Thousand globally released productions.
