This is the trailer for a proposed documentary about Carol Kaye. You might not have heard of her, but you’ve definitely heard her play.
Her bass and/or guitar work can be heard on classic tracks by Richie Valenz, Simon and Garfunkle, The Beach Boys, The Monkees, Ray Charles, Ike & Tina Turner, Nancy Sinatra, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Barbra Streisand, Dusty Springfield, David Axelrod and many, many more.
Oh, and she performed on the themes for M*A*S*H, Mission: Impossible, Get Smart, Hogan’s Heroes, The Love Boat, Cosby Show, Hawaii Five-O, The Addams Family, The Brady Bunch and The Streets of San Francisco.
We’ll save a list of her film score work for another time.
