Add to Calendar 2014-11-26 7:30 pm 2014-11-26 Ron Carter Big Band at Jazz Standard Ron Carter Big Band
Throughout his illustrious career, bassist/composer Ron Carter has played it all: as an integral member of Miles Davis’ classic quintet of the Sixties, as the anchor for countless CTI Records sessions in the Seventies, as the fountainhead of multifarious musical projects including his cello-infused, chamber-jazz nonet and his trio of bass, piano, and guitar.

But Carter had never led or recorded with a big band of his own—until September 2011 and the Sunny­side release of Ron Carter’s Great Big Band. “Instead of banking on the contours of extrapolation, [the album] revels in the power of pith,” wrote Jim Macnie in The Village Voice. “The longest tune is just over five minutes, so concision rules and a songbook of standards dominates. From ‘Con Alma’ to ‘Footprints’ to ‘St. Louis Blues,’ each track boasts a great punch, as well as moment or two of fantasia. There’s something wonderfully simple yet rich to these charts.” The Ron Carter Big Band made its live debut on our stage in 2011 to a rapturous critical and audience response—and we’re extremely pleased to recall this great ensemble for another thrilling run at Jazz Standard. Make your reservations now!
