The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Buddy Catlett (bass)

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Buddy Catlett was a great jazz bassist, but he also played many other instruments. He was born George James Catlett on May 13th, 1933 (or maybe 1943, some sources differ) in Long Beach, California, but was raised in Seattle. There were some musicians in his family (his brother and his cousin). Buddy started studying clarinet and sax, but he then changed for contrabass after an illness (tubeculous pleurisy).


CHARLES TAYLOR ORCHESTRA


In 1947, Quincy Jones and Buddy Catlett joined a semi-professional band led by sax player Charles Taylor:

ROBERT BUMPS BLACKWELL ORCHESTRA


His first professional work was around 1950 with Bumps Blackwell Orchestra, playing sax, but due to an illness (pleurisy), he switched to bass. While he was in the orchestra, his mate Quincy Jones was a member too.

This was the Bumps Blackwell Junior Band when Buddy Catlett and Quincy Jones were members:

During 1958 and 1959, Buddy was part of the house band at Melody´s Lounge club in Denver.

Then, in 1959, he joined Cal Tjader Group.

After moving to New York, he rejoined Quincy Jones playing with his fabulous Quincy Jones Orchestra.
