Ray Drummond

Composer, arranger, bandleader, educator and producer are hats that bassist RAY DRUMMOND has worn well over the past 30 years. But it all comes down to one thing: musician Ray Drummond likes to make great music. Born the son of an Army colonel on November 23, 1946 in Brookline, Massachusetts, he attended 14 different schools around the world. Drummond's musical journey began at age eight with the trumpet, then French horn. Though, early on he developed a love of jazz and taught himself listening to the music of jazz masters. It wasn't until he was 14 years old that his music director persuaded him to play the bass. Ultimately, his family settled in California, where Drummond earned a B.A. in Political Science, and attended Stanford Business School.
