Brooks played with Donald Fagen&apos;s musical project the New York Rock and Soul Revue from 1991–1992. After a short stint with Danny Kortchmar&apos;s Slo Leak band in Westport CT, he relocated to Tucson Arizona in 1994 He has continued to perform and record.


Brooks moved east to meet Crosby, Stills & Nash in Sag Harbor, New York. Brooks and Paul Harris moved to John Sebastian&apos;s house for pre-production on John B. Sebastian (1970) album. The album was recorded at the Hit Factory.


After the Electric Flag disbanded, Brooks took up temporary residence at the Chateau Marmont hotel on Sunset Strip. From there he played on Cass Elliot&apos;s Dream a Little Dream (1968), and with Nick Gravenites and Pete Welding he produced Quicksilver Messenger Service (1968) for Capitol Records. Brooks also played on The Doors&apos; The Soft Parade (1969) album on the songs "Touch Me", "Tell All the People", "Wild Child" and "Wishful Sinful". Producer Paul Rothchild wanted to give the Doors a fresh sound. He hired Brooks to play and help organize the rhythm tracks and Paul Harris to write some string and horn arrangements. Brooks also played live with the Doors at the Forum in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York and was on the Michael Bloomfield/Al Kooper/Stephen Stills Super Session (1968) release. His song "Harvey&apos;s Tune" appeared on this album.


It was through his participation in The Electric Flag, an extension of Michael Bloomfield and Barry Goldberg&apos;s interests in blues, that Brooks&apos;s career took an unexpected turn. The Flag only lasted in its original line-up for about a year, and much of that time was spent recording a sound track album to the film The Trip (1967).


Al Kooper gave Brooks his first boost to fame when he asked him to play as part of Bob Dylan&apos;s backing band on the sessions that yielded the album Highway 61 Revisited (1965) — in contrast to the kind of folkie-electric sound generated by the band on his previous album, Bringing It All Back Home (1965). Producer Bob Johnson and Dylan were looking for a harder, in-your-face electric sound, and Brooks, along with guitarist Michael Bloomfield and organist Al Kooper, provided exactly what was needed. Brooks was also part of Dylan&apos;s early backing band which performed at Forest Hills, Queens and the Hollywood Bowl in 1965. This band also included Robbie Robertson (guitar), Al Kooper (keyboards) and Levon Helm (drums).


Brooks came out of a New York music scene in the early 1960s. One of the younger players on his instrument, he was a contemporary of Felix Pappalardi and Andy Kulberg and other eclectic bass players in their late teens and early twenties, who saw a way to bridge the styles of folk, blues, rock, and jazz.
