Ron Carter All Blues on 180g Import LP
Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Staff Mastering
Ron Carter is among the most original, prolific, and influential bassists in jazz. With more than 2,000 albums to his credit, he has recorded with many of music's greats: Tommy Flanagan, Gil Evans, Lena Horne, Bill Evans, B.B. King, the Kronos Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Bobby Timmons.
In the early 1960s he performed throughout the United States in concert halls and nightclubs with Jaki Byard and Eric Dolphy. He later toured Europe with Cannonball Adderley. From 1963 to 1968, he was a member of the classic and acclaimed Miles Davis Quintet.
1973's All Blues is Carter's fifth album as a leader and second for the CTI label. Working in a tight quartet with Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), Roland Hanna (piano) and Billy Cobham (drums, percussion), the excellent six-track set is true to its title with heavy soloing throughout.
