Ken Smith is on a distinguished road
Default Glenn Miller recording, 1972 band

Here I am playing on most of the tracks but not all of them. The first link we found had just 10 second clips. I played first with the GM band 50 years ago when I was just 18 in 1970. My son Jon (thanks Jon) bought me a copy of the CD and I just listened to it in my car. I think a few tracks that sound like Gut strings are NOT me on Bass but either older records put here with Trigger Alpert on bass or 'Moonlight Serenade' which I know was done after in LA with Rolly Bondock on bass to include him and some other living members out west. I had Spirocores on my Wilfer and super low action so the notes on the E string were slightly softer in the mix. The mixing engineer between the sessions then asked the contractor, 'Is that an Electric Bass?", as my bass was clear and clean sounding. (:

CREDITS:Bass - Ken Smith, Roland Bundock, Trigger Alpert

Of Note: on String of Pearls, minute 2:43, I hit the low C on my Extension. Nice to listen back decades later...

I think THIS Record is slightly different with other tracks as well added from earlier recording to fill it out.

Vol2; some more of which i'm on some but not all cuts..
