About the Composer

The most recorded jazz bassist in history, (with a Guinness World Record to prove it), Ron Carter has remained at the forefront of jazz, as well as classical, hip-hop and Latin music from his early days with Miles Davis's historic Quintet, to his playing on the seminal hip-hop record Low End Theory, to Santana's latest "In Search of Mona Lisa", not to mention dozens of his own albums over the years.

He has won multiple Grammy Awards and in 2015 he received France‘s premier cultural award, the medallion and title of Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters, given to those who have distinguished themselves in the domain of artistic or literary creation and for their contribution to the spread of arts and letters in France and the world.

Carter has lectured, conducted, and performed at clinics and master classes,
instructing jazz ensembles and teaching the business of music at numerous universities. He was Artistic Director of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Studies and, after 18 years on the faculty of the Music Department of The City
College of New York, he is now Distinguished Professor Emeritus

Carter continues to teach when he is in New York City, and he has a library of instructional books - exclusively available on this website - that are used in universities and by individuals on every continent.

He tours the world every year with his trio, quartet, big band, nonet, and also a a sideman for a number of prestigious bands.
