Ron Carter

1937 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Bass/double bass/cello

Genre: Jazz

A master bassist, Ron Carter is the epitome of grace, elegance and class and one of the greatest rhythmic jazz artists of our time. A sought after musician, he has participated in numerous recording sessions with some of the biggest names in jazz history. Between 1963 and 1968, Carter was a member of the Miles Davis Quintet and continued to make a name for himself throughout the 1970s as leader of his own band, thanks in part to his piccolo double bass. A great teacher, Carter has transmitted his own knowledge through his writings and his lectures at high profile learning establishments. His influence on younger generations of musicians is unprecedented.
