Healdsburg Jazz Festival: Ron Carter Quartet at Raven Theater
115 North St, Healdsburg,
Sat, June 7, 2014
From Eric Dolphy to Jim Hall to Antonio Carlos Jobim to Kenny Burrell to Roberta Flack to Paul Desmond to McCoy Tyner to A Tribe Called Quest to Phoebe Snow to major symphony orchestras to Miles Davis— whose magical second quintet he anchored for five years—Ron Carter has been the pulse, or as he likes to put it, “the quarterback.” He is an NEA Jazz Master, but as for the rest of his awards, international accolades, honorary degrees and directorships, feel free to Google him because there are too many to list here. He’s just done it all. The 76-year-old bassist arrives with his quartet featuring three superb players: drummer Payton Crossley, percussionist Rolando Morales-Mattos, and pianist Renee Rosnes.
