Musicians in Their Own Words: Keter Betts

As part of the occasional series "Musicians in Their Own Words," jazz bassist Keter Betts describes his music. Betts, 75, appears on some 200 albums — he played with Dinah Washington, Stan Getz and Ella Fitzgerald — it was only recently that he recorded a CD of his own. Features in the series are produced by David Schulman and NPR's Jeffrey Freymann-Weyr.
