Ron Carter is among the most original, prolific, and influential bassists in jazz and has played on seminal albums in many other genres. He has recorded over 2200 albums, and has a Guinness world record to prove it! From 1963 to 1968, he was a member of the acclaimed Miles Davis Quintet. He can be heard on many iconic jazz records of the 60s and 70s such as Speak No Evil, Maiden Voyage, Speak Like a Child, and Red Clay, to name a few. After leaving the quintet he embarked on a prolific 50-year freelance career that spanned vastly different music genres and continues to this day. He recorded with Roberta Flack and Aretha Franklin; with Gil Scott Heron on Pieces of a Man; appeared on the seminal hip-hop album Low End Theory with a Tribe Called Quest; played on albums by Billy Joel, Bette Midler, Paul Simon, and more; and wrote and recorded pieces for string quartets and Bach chorales for 2-8 basses.
