Vienna, Austria, 1988


Written by Vincent Youmans for a musical in 1925, “No, No, Nanette,” “I Want to Be Happy” would climb the Billboard charts sporadically over the next 90 years – including at the hands (and throat) of Bing Crosby and Benny Goodman.

This was a period for Ray Brown when he would continue to lead trios, such as this one. Incidentally, in the early '80s, Brown was responsible for introducing jazz Grammy superstar Diana Krall to her regular bassist, John Clayton.
