The Ron Carter Big Band TONIGHT at The Jazz Standard!

But Carter had never led or recorded with a big band of his own – until September 2011 and the Sunnyside release of Ron Carter’s Great Big Band, a powerfully swinging set featuring the talents of arranger Bob Freedman on such golden standards as “Caravan,” “Con Alma,” “St. Louis Blues,” and the bracing Carter originals “Loose Change” and “Opus 1.5 (Theme for C.B.).” “With this delightful big–band date,” wrote Ken Dryden at, “the veteran bassist continues to surprise and delight listeners during a career spanning five-plus decades.” The Ron Carter Big Band made its live debut on our stage in September 2011 to a rapturous critical and audience response – and we’re extremely pleased to recall this great ensemble for its third thrilling run at Jazz Standard.
