Wellman Braud (January 25, 1891 - October 29, 1966) was a United States jazz string bass player.
Braud's playing on Ellingon'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 a string bass.
In 1936 Braud co-managed a short lived Harlem club with Jimmie Noone, then formed the group The Spirits of Rhythm.

Sometime after 1904, while still in his 'teens, Braud was in New Orleans where he played the violin and bass fiddle, and even led his own trio in the 'Storyville' district.
Braud's "Walking Bass" and his "Slap" style of playing the bass greatly distinguished Ellington's band during the late 1920s and early 1930s.
It is not well recalled today, but we must credit Braud's style with bringing about the change from using a Brass Bass (tuba) to using a String Bass with modern orchestras.

 CD Review of Stefon Harris - African Tarantella: Dances With Duke on Blue Note @ jazzreview.com
Delicately impressionistic and orchestral though “Bourbon Street Jingling Jollies” may be, “Portrait of Wellman Braud” is raucous and rambling, as Wellman Braud’s movement is signified by the six-eight bass line pronounced by pianist Xavier Davis and Hodge.
Comical and exclamatory, “Portrait of Wellman Braud,” a blues after all, creates visual and aural images, particularly when Steve Turre wails a Braud monologue that could as appropriately appear as part of a film’s sound track.
As Harris’s artistry continues to broaden, that in the future he may be as recognized for his compositions and arrangements as he has been for his musicianship.

One of the top string bassists of the 1920s, Wellman Braud was the first of the great Duke Ellington bass players, a tradition that would later include Jimmy Blanton, Oscar Pettiford, and even Charles Mingus.
Braud became a key member of Duke Ellington's Orchestra (1927-1935), and his well-recorded bass (his only close competitor on his instrument during the period was Pops Foster) really drove the band during their many records.
After leaving Ellington, Braud played with the Spirits of Rhythm (1935-1937) before forming his own trio.

In traditional jazz and swing, it is sometimes played in the slap style, a more vigorous version of pizzicato where the string is plucked so hard it then bounces off the finger board, making a distinctive sound.
(Notable slap style bass players have included Bill Johnson, Wellman Braud, Pops Foster[?], and Milt Hinton[?].)
Slam Stewart[?], a jazz bassist in the 1940s, took solos in which he bowed the bass and sang along in octave harmony.

From about 1905, it was sometimes known as the Arlington Annex, after Josie Arlington's whorehouse, one of the three largest and most popular on Basin Street.
The saloon offered music on a modest scale, presenting small bands, such as string trios (mandolin or violin, guitar and double bass); among the musicians who played there were Bill Johnson, the fl guitarist Tom Brown, and Wellman Braud, playing violin.
In published accounts such famous musicians as Louis Armstrong and Albert Nicholas are said to have played at Anderson's Annex, but they actually worked at Tom Anderson's New Cabaret and Restaurant.
