No jazz bassist has been recorded as many times as the eminent Ron Carter. His 2,221 appearances, as a leader or accompanying musician, are a lasting record of his astonishing career, which has seen him collaborate with every generation of renowned musicians since the 1950s, starting with Cannonball Adderley, Eric Dolphy and Thelonious Monk, and then over the years with McCoy Tyner and Freddie Hubbard and modern hip-hop musicians such as Mos Def and Talib Kweli. But it was his work in the second great Miles Davis quartet in the 60s, with Herbie Hancock on piano, Wayne Shorter on saxophone and Tony Williams on drums, that made him a legend.

Here he is joined by Russel L. Malone on guitar and Donald Vega on drums, daring musicians and virtuosos in their own right. The octogenarian presents a repertoire that includes many of his best-loved compositions and interpretations, including a rendition of the famous ‘My Funny Valentine’. Carter was one of the last true masters to take jazz to its post-war peak.
