View Website

Among the most original, prolific and influential bassists in jazz history, Ron Carter is a two-time Grammy winner and a member of the classic and acclaimed Miles Davis Quintet from 1963 to 1968. With an inquisitive, searching mind to match his unparalleled artistry, Mr. Carter leads an eight-member ensemble interpreting classics of Bach and Ravel as well as Donny Hathaway's "A Song for You." Using rhythmic, melodic and other sonic devices specific to American culture, he demonstrates how music can be transformed by place and time. Mr. Carter will talk with Mr. McKnight about his long career as a recording artist, composer, arranger, educator and author.
