Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba

The album is called Skline and it was recorded at the Power Station in New York.

I’m sure you know their names, but do you know their stories?

Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

To focus one just one…

Ron Carter is one of the most recorded artists in history with 2,200 albums to his credit. You’d need a phone book (the big old school kind) just to list them all.

You could trace the history – and many of the highlights – of modern jazz by simply following his career.

In 2014, France had the good sense to give him the title of Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters, France’s premier cultural award.

Radio Free Birdland is presenting The Ron Carter Quartet Premiering Saturday March 6th at 7pm On Demand Through Saturday March 13th

Review: LIVE – Sara Gazarek

Where the great musicians come from

Before you get your knickers in knot that “this isn’t jazz”, keep in mind that very, very, very few great jazz musicians started out playing jazz.

However, many started their musical “careers” as surprisingly young children, often playing with their families.

It’s a missing chapter of what I call Jazz Reality History.

We don’t have footage of Louis Armstrong singing with his quartet on street corners (his description: “the best boy group in New Orleans.”)

We don’t have a recording of Lester Young playing drums in his father’s band…or Eddie Durham playing with his brothers in San Marcos, Texas…or Charlie Haden singing on the Haden Family Radio Hour at the age of two.

So we have to use our imaginations.

Meanwhile, thanks to the magic of consumer video and Youtube we can get a glimpse of what this magic is like in real life.

By the way, in case they didn’t teach you in school – and they probably didn’t – music is love.
