Recorded at Fasching in Stockholm a year ago, Ron Carter, his place in jazz history secure for many reasons but especially from his tenure in the Second Great Miles Davis Quintet (1964-1968), the baton passed on to him in many ways by Ray Brown, leading his quartet that features fine pianist Renee Rosnes, the ex-Horace Silver tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene and choice drummer Payton Crossley on Foursight – Stockholm Volume 1 released by Frank Kleinschmidt’s In + Out Records.

Tracks are 1. 'Cominando' (07:39) 2. the Victor Feldman classic 'Joshua' (08:51) 3. 'Little Waltz' (07:04) 4. 'Seguaro' (10:35) 5. 'Cominando, Reprise' (02:00) 6. 'Nearly' (13:10) 7. 'You And The Night And The Music' (7:57). Three years ago the Guinness World Records put out a press release entitled “Ron Carter earns world record as the most recorded jazz bassist in history” with 2,221 recordings to his name at the time of publication. Add quite a few since and as ever in addition to quantity crucially unrivalled quality – in the same breath.
