: Hey, Carol Kaye.........How did you come into playing R&B music for Motown? What drew you to playing bass? And what were the reactions from the artists that never saw you before hand at recording sessions?

: Thanks in advance......
There are many books coming out soon about the LA Motown hits cut since 1963 out here in LA. Their offices were out here since then, altho' it's not widely known for many reasons. I wa a professional guitarist playing jazz since 1949, was a studio guitarist first on many hits 1957-1965 and took up the elec. bass when a bassist didn't show up at Capitol Records late '63 but many like Sonny & Cher used me for their identifiable sound (Phil Spector) too on guitar so there was some overlap. The artists? They were they knew they were going to get a hit record then. For more information, see my FAQ page on my website: I'll bet you didn't know there were a ton of fine women jazz musicians in the 40s and 50s, well-respected, and men loved to work with them. It's just been lately that "men" and some women tho't it was a "new thing" for a woman to be fine in the music business.
