Congrats Chuck!

Needless to say that this is well deserved…

Berklee College of Music Commencement 2022 – Chuck Rainey receives honorary Doctorate in Music

About the statement of the most recorded bass player, I think that title could still be Ron Carter’s. Or with the electric bass, maybe James Jamerson’s. But still, Chuck is worth studying if you care for the low end. His work on Steely Dan’s “Aja” alone is worth it…

So again, a round of applause and congrats to you, Sir!

By the way: in an interview with Cory Wong and Victor Wooten which I saw yesterday, Victor told us that Chuck is in fact older than the (first commercially available) electric bass. Incredible, and worth listening to if you care for the bass.
