Milt Hinton is the most-recorded jazz musician of all time. In his long illustrious life as a band and studio musician, Hinton played with just about everyone. He is most famous for the technique he perfected called “slapping” or “slap bass.”
To jazz historians and aficionados he is also famous as a photographer. Hinton loved taking photographs and carried a camera with him where ever he went. His remarkable photographs chronicle the life of Jazz from the days of Louis Armstrong to almost the present day.
Hinton lived to be 90, so when he sings of Ol’ Man Time… he knows what he is talking about.
How can I not be partial to someone name Hinton, and feature him on Music Monday?
