he legendary bassist Ron Carter had accomplished nearly everything a jazz musician could. He had appeared on thousands of recordings, performed with legends, and had led revered ensembles. One thing he hadn't done was led a big band. On the new CD Ron Carter's Great Big Band (Sunnyside, 2011), Carter finally got to be at the helm of 17 piece large ensemble. Assisted by arranger Bob Freedman and producer Wendy MacDonald, the ensemble took on an eclectic program of compositions by a handful of jazz masters, including Carter himself.
With a rhythmic section of exception (Mulgrew Miller, Lewis Nash) & talented soloist, this 17-musicians Orchestra is one of the Jazz events of the end of the year.
