RIP Butch Warren

The death has been announced of Butch Warren one of the top American double bassists of the 1950s. Warren played on many of the Blue Note classics from that period including Dexter Gordon's Go and Herbie Hancock's Takin' Off which included the classic Watermelon Man..
As house bass player for Blue Note he also recorded with Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Joe Henderson, Grant Green, Sonny Clark, Stanley Turrentine - in fact just about anybody who was anybody on the label. Sadly illness saw Warren fade from the scene and he played only sporadically in recent years.
Edward "Butch" Warren died on October 5 aged 74.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.
