CD review: Ron Carter – Foursight. Stockholm, Vol.1 – 2019: Video, CD cover

The strings vibrate gently. Accurate tone, unconditionally clear. And quietly. The longest fingers of jazz seem to dance weightlessly along the wooden bridge; yearning, filigree and elegant.

No one else sounds like Ron Carter. His double bass often produces a crisp groove like an electric bass, yet it is always clearly definable as the sound of a classical music instrument.

“With us, nobody knows exactly what happens when. This is precisely why every concert is a real challenge. We almost always play 35 to 40 minutes without a stop. No breaks, just slight changes that show the beginning of a new song. This kind of thing only works with this band! … It’s like giving a private concert in a living room, or we could be a chamber music ensemble that develops the power of a large orchestra without leaving a certain volume level. We have undoubtedly succeeded in doing so in Stockholm. I really love this CD!” – Ron Carter!!!
