The details

Peter Chuck Badie (born May 17, 1925) is a jazz bass player. He was born in New Orleans, and his father was a prominent jazz saxophone player who played with the "Eureka" and the "Original Olympia" brass bands.

Badie left the Navy in 1945, and then used the G.I. Bill to enrol at the Grunewald School of Music. From around 1950 he played with singer Roy Brown for two years. He then "worked with the singer Paul Gayten and Dave Bartholomew, then from 1954 to 1956 was a member of Lionel Hampton's orchestra."

Badie played double bass on some famous New Orleans rhythm-and-blues recordings. He worked with Hank Crawford, Edward Frank, June Gardner, Dizzy Gillespie, and Zoot Sims, but had to stop playing in the 1970s because of stomach problems. He returned to frequent playing in the 1990s, as part of Dr. John's band.
