“I want to show them the cat” – Ron Carter, master educator

Musician extraordinaire…one of the most recorded artists in the history of recording…a member of so many iconic bands it would take pages to list them all…

…And an educator with a brand new masterwork that will resonate across the ages.

I’m not kidding.

For musicians, this is MUST be listening.

For people who love the music even if they don’t know a flatted fifth from a fifth of vodka, this interview will take you deeper into the REALITY of jazz as it’s performed at a high level than anything else I can think of.

Enjoy.
