  • Wellman Braud (January 25, 1891 – October 29, 1966) was a Creole American jazz upright bassist. His family sometimes spelled their last name "Breaux", pronounced "Bro".Born in St. James Parish, Louisiana, Braud came to New Orleans, in his early teens. He was playing violin and the upright bass and leading a trio in venues in the Storyville District before 1910. He moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1917. In 1923 he went to London with the Plantation Orchestra, in which he doubled on bass and trombone. Next he moved to New York City where he played with Wilber Sweatman's band before joining Duke Ellington. It has been noted by Branford Marsalis that Braud was the first to utilize the walking bass** style that has been a mainstay in modern jazz [opposed to the 'two-beat' pattern the tuba plays in the New Orleans style]. His vigorous melodic bass playing, alternately plucking, slapping, and bowing, was an important feature of the early Ellington Orchestra sound in the 1920s and 1930s. Braud's playing on Ellington's regular radio broadcasts and recordings helped popularize the slap style of string bass playing, as well as encouraging many dance bands of the time to switch from using a tuba to an Upright bass. (Like many of his contemporary New Orleans bassists, Braud doubled on tuba, and he recorded on that instrument on some sides with Ellington.)In 1936 Braud co-managed a short lived Harlem club with Jimmie Noone, and recorded with the group Spirits of Rhythm from 1935 to 1937. He played with other New York bands including those of Kaiser Marshall, Hot Lips Page, and Sidney Bechet, and returned for a while to Ellington in 1944. In 1956 he joined the Kid Ory Band with whom he stayed for years.He is a distant relative of Branford Marsalis and Branford's brothers through their mother's side.He died in Los Angeles, California.

Hij speelde viool en contrabas en later trombone. In New York City speelde hij in Wilber Sweatman's band waarna hij bij Duke Ellington ging spelen. Zijn stijl van bassen waarbij hij melodiespel, pizzicato en strijken afwisselde was een belangrijk aspect in de vroege 'Ellington Orchestra sound' in de jaren 20 en 30.Hij overleed op 75-jarige leeftijd in Los Angeles in de VS.
