Ray Bryant performs on an episode of the British TV series "Jazz Session" in 1973.
Philadelphia native, Ray Bryant first started on the piano at age six.
From 1953-1956 he was the house pianist in his home town's Blue Note Club, and there played with such jazz greats as Miles Davis and Charlie Parker.
After this he joined a trio which toured the world, and in 1973 performed at the "Montreux Jazz Festival".
Along with brother, bass player Tommy Bryant, and Oz Perkins, Ray formed a trio which provided accompaniment for the 1964 off-Broadway comedy "Cambridge Circus" starring actor John Cleese.
Ray has composed a number of songs including "Cubano Chant", "The Madison Time" and "Little Susie".
That's how we grow.
