Matthews Brown (October 13, 1926
July 2, 2002) was an influential American
jazz double bassist, known for extensive
work with Oscar Peterson among many
major early influence on Brown's bass playing
was the bassist in the Duke Ellington band,
Jimmy Blanton. As a young man Ray Brown
became steadily more well known in the Pittsburgh
jazz scene, with his first experiences playing
in bands with the Jimmy Hinsley Sextet and
the Snookum Russell band. After graduating
from high school, hearing stories about
the burgeoning jazz scene on 52nd Street,
in New York City, he bought a one way ticket
to New York. Arriving in New York at the
age of twenty, he met up with Hank Jones,
with whom he had previously worked, and
was introduced to Dizzy Gillespie, who was
looking for a bass player. Gillespie hired
Brown on the spot and he soon played with
such established musicians as Art Tatum
and Charlie Parker.
1946 to 1951 he played in Gillespie's band.
Brown, along with the vibraphonist Milt
Jackson, drummer Kenny Clarke, and the pianist
John Lewis formed the rhythm section of
the Gillespie band. Lewis, Clarke and Jackson
eventually formed the Modern Jazz Quartet.
Brown became acquainted with singer Ella
Fitzgerald when she joined the Gillespie
band as a special attraction for a tour
of the southern United States in 1947.
The two married that year, and together
they adopted a child born to Fitzgerald's
half-sister Frances, whom they christened
Ray Brown, Jr. Fitzgerald and Brown divorced
