against ornament...

"it is so funny that nowadays if you read a review of a performance or a recording and the bass player plays fast and high or plays some good solos, he will get special merit, but if he just lays down some good time with a good sound and good intonation, he may not ever be mentioned. you know, when they want to see if someone is dead, they listen for the heartbeat (pulse), maybe that’s what a lot of people think happened to some music."

bassist ray brown, 1972
