Editorial Review

If you've ever dabbled in acoustic jazz, you've probably heard Ron Carter's staccato magic pushing a rhythm section. Over the course of thousands of recordings as a leader, in session and in film and classical scores, he's expanded the vocabulary of harmonic possibilities for the upright bass. Carter's career is a thread that runs through the swing of Chico Hamilton, the distinguished alumni of Miles Davis' second quintet all the way to A Tribe Called Quest's groundbreaking "The Low End Theory" album. For this three-night engagement at the Caverns, Carter and his Golden Stryker Trio will be revisiting material from their 2003 album of the same name.
