Ray Brown (1926 – 2002) was an influential American jazz double bassist and cellist, known for extensive work with Oscar Peterson and Ella Fitzgerald, among many others.

Super Bass is tributed to the great Freddie Green and it features Ray Brown, Jeff Hamilton, Jeff Clayton, John Clayton and Green himself.

The ensemble lays down some of the best bass driven jazz you're ever likely to hear.

"Super Bass has been a dream of mine longer than I can remember. Back in 1945 I did One Bass Hit and in 1946 I did Two Bass Hit. All that time I had thoughts of doing the Triple and the Home Run. Well I guess Super Bass is a fulfillment to those two. First of all I had this young student that returned from studying at Indiana University as a complete 'wizard' of the bass. He also was studying conducting and arranging and will be one of the top arrangers in the music business. His name is John Clayton and he is a major part of this album." - Ray Brown
