Mysterious CAROL KAYE, ..Never Heard of Her....BUT, We ALL Heard Her...Who Is She, Anyway?

Carol Kaye/see photo credits
CAROL KAYE...never heard of her.....BUT, we've ALL heard her. I love her sound...our hero bassist of the '60 and '70's....but, she's been kept a secret 'til now.
I read on FACEBOOK that today's Carol Kaye's 81st birthday. A perfect day to celebrate her achievements. So, I'm gonna find more. O.K?
Here's what WIKIPEDIA said: "is an American musician, known as one of the most prolific and widely heard bass guitarists, playing on an estimated 10,000 recordings in a career spanning over 50 years.". . 
From what I saw....she was the bassist for just 'bout everybody that we Hippies loved back then.
First of all. She was born in my neck of the woods Everett, Washington and raised in Port Angeles, Washington. In the 60's, at the young age of 14, she taught guitar in Los Angeles, CA. and played jazz. As I understood it, Kaye played for SAM COOKE,and somehow, when a bass player did not show up for a studio gig, she was asked to fill in at CAPITAL Records. That was the beginning of it all. Here's a list of folks she played with or for: From WIKIPEDIA again...:"The Beach BoysPhil Spector,The DoorsRitchie Valens,Frank SinatraNancy Sinatra,Glen CampbellLeon Russell,Sonny & CherJoe Cocker,Barbra StreisandRay CharlesFrank ZappaIke & Tina TurnerJohnny Mathis,Simon & GarfunkelThe Righteous BrothersThe MarkettsHerb AlpertThe BuckinghamsPaul Revere & the RaidersGary Lewis & the PlayboysThe Monkees,Buffalo SpringfieldHoward RobertsJoe Pass:  . That 'bout wraps it up. except 'Happy Birthday, Carol'. The end, Jan

Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing, MARVIN GAYE's The Real Thing....Again

My story from January 22nd, 2014....On FACEBOOK yesterday, I listened to some cool music rom Marvin Gaye....reminded me of this old story of mine...Hope you enjoy it.  Jan
see photo credit
Lotsa cool music this's the real thing,..yep a cool vibration is always the right music at the right makes the difference, does't it?  Jazz, blues, soul, doesn't matter....just as long as it's BARTLETT ON BASS.  Steve's loving working up these basslines this week. AND, I'm loving ALL the music and, that is, of course, whatever MY bassman's playing.
I'll find more about MARVIN GAYE for this post, running into alot of his tunes the last few days. Just because I'm wondering about him.
O.K., Marvin Gaye had a violent home life as a boy and teenager. His Dad was very religious and strick and would beat him often, the only bright light in his early life was singing, it was encouraged in his church and by his mother. He left home as a teenager.
He signed a contract with TAMLA, a part of MOTOWN in 1960 performing jazz standards, and had zero interest in R & B, Soul, or Funk. As his Motown tunes became million dollar hits, it looks like he changed his mind. He then became known as the 'Prince of Soul' or the 'Prince of Motown
He sang duets with MARY WELLS and HERE, and TAMMY TERRELL and HERE. Terrell was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1967. She had several operations that made it difficult for her to perform. She died on March 16th, 1970 of brain cancer. 
Gaye left music because of depression after her death. He wanted to quit music and play football.
Then, I found this in WIKIPEDIA... " It was eventually decided that Gaye wouldn't be allowed to try out owing to fears of possible injuries that could have affected his music career."
So, he went back to work in music. It doesn't say 'who' decided that Gaye would not play football, but, it doesn't sound like Marvin Gaye to me, does it? Jan

No Stranger to ME.....'Stranger in a Strange Land'....It's LEON RUSSELL

by CLender cc
Well, this guy is one of my favorites... he's no stranger to me, I bet you recognize him too...It's LEON RUSSELL, and it seems like Leon's been 'round just forever that's all....the late '60's is when I first noticed him and he became an instant hero to me.  As time went on and I learned more about him...well, I just seemed to love him more and more.
O.K....Russell was and is a very gifted genius song writer, not only writing awesome songs that he has recorded himself, but he's written so many songs for other musical artists. He has played with so many musical Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, The Byrds, The Carpenters, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Glen campbell, Elton John, Tiajuana Brass,...and so many more, see WIKIPENDIA link below.. I believe the greatest and most talented musicians of the 60's and '70's. ...WOW.
It was no wonder that he was put into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 2011, it was about time, I say. [See MY story about Leon's Hall of Fame entrance in 2011 HERE]  But, he did more than just rock and roll, there's country, folk, gospel, and blues too...really everything. He is respected and honored by musicians of all genres, and has written, or jointly written lotsa big hit tunes for them all, as well as been on stage performing along side them all. He's a musician's musician. Please read his bio from WIKIPEDIA to get the whole list of the number of musicians that his life has touched and enhanced. O.K?
His inter-racial marriage in 1975 to 'Sly And The Family Stone' member MARY McCLEARY and, his unique odd sounding voice, ..was just like my 'want to be a singer' voice, just made Russell even more endearing to me always...he always sounded just like one of us 'common' folk. Love you Leon. Jan

Natural Evolution: What happens When HIPPIES Have Kids?....Well, Those Kids Change the World..

BY Pierre-Olivier CC
I'm so proud of my children and wanna post some photos,of course, like every mom.. even though they're both grown up now, married and I have a grandson too, they'll always be my
First kids were normal kids..just .look at the first photo, will ya?....see? All looks normal, doesn't it...BUT, wait... The parents of these two....where...yep...HIPPIES!!
As Hippies they wanted to change the world,and social values of the times, you know....things like civil rights and, racial equality were very important..those two kids heard 'bout it every single day....that was our normal talk at home.
And, my two kids came from  mixed-racial Hippie parents. It was normal and accepted ideas to all of us.
Now, I remember what a ' threat, and troubling'' these very ideas where for MY parents way back was scary and we didn't even think about telling my parents about our marriage, until after the fact. This was in the '60's It took several years for our parents to feel comfortable with  my first husband and we  were totally accepted to them....but, that time DID, they changed along with the rest of the world. By becoming the feared or so called enemy....understanding and loving change..
Cool.The world has changed...just like we HIPPIES intended...everybody wins with thoughts f kindness, fairness and equally. Music was included and a part of it all. .
I can see that my very open minded children have expanded these ideas further than I ever imagined in the '60's. Just the way it should be...Yep, I'm very proud of my children, and the way they both are lights to the world and evolution of the planet. Jan
Now, pictures...O.K/ Jan

Everything I Wanna Know 'Bout....'People Get Ready' By CURTIS MAYFIELD

by  cdrummbks cc
Wanna know ALL there is about the song 'People Get Ready'? [thanks guillaimz] Well, we heard that song today, done by the CHAMBER BROTHERS and HERE. It was a Holiday gift from,  who Steve likes to calls.... THE Doctor of Funk,  he's a very special and gifted tenor sax man. [I need to ask him if I can post his name on this story though,..Jan]...PLEASE, Please can I?.... with sugar on top?  .O.K. folks if our friend,... 'the inimitable Tenor Saxophone Extraordinaire" mystery person  gives me the O.K.,. I'll update this post right now. 11/29...UPDATE: Got the O.K...'YEAH'. His name is....drum roll please...' D.R.Phillips' . Checked the spelling and everything....Jan
'Boy, you guys just wanna let you all know that keeping MY mouth shut...IS so hard.'
So,  let me look up CURTIS MAYFIELD and HERE, 'cause he's cool and it will keep me kinda busy...'til I hear from our mystery Sax Man.....O.K?
Let's see...Mayfield  gained fame in the 50's and 60's with THE IMPRESIONS....he was a blues/funk guitarist, singer/song writer. Worked hard in the civil rights
Here's a guote from WIKIPEDIA: " Mayfield is regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music.[1][2] Being one of the most celebrated figures in the genre of soul and 20th-century music," Listen to this.... PEOPLE GET READY, by Curtis Mayfield, by Geepereet.
: winner of both the Grammy Legend Award (in 1994) and theGrammy Lifetime Achievement Award (in 1995), and he was a double inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted as a member of the Impressions into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and again in 1999 as a solo artist. He is also a two-time Grammy Hall of Fameinductee."...all this I found in WIKIPEDIA.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
Gotta go, swill finish this tomorrow. Jan
I'm back....Check the top video link for lotsa stuff about Mayfield's song. Jan
