60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1963

When the scheduled bassist fails to show up for a recording session at Capitol Records in Hollywood, a Los Angeles jazz and session guitarist picks up a Precision Bass for the first time. By the end of 1963 she becomes L.A.’s top first-call session bassist and goes on to play on countless pop hits, movie scores and television themes throughout the 1960s and 1970s (far too numerous to list here, but a short selection includes songs by the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, the Righteous Brothers, Sonny and Cher, Andy Williams, the Monkees, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Joe Cocker and Ray Charles, and music from Mission Impossible, Get Smart, Ironside, M*A*S*H, Kojak, Hawaii Five-O, Airport, In the Heat of the Night and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner). Who is she?

And the answer is … Carol Kaye
