RON CARTER, ALL BLUES (CTI)


Two recordings from Ron Carter and Hubert Laws that have never seen daylight on CD before have been reissued under Sony’s continuing “CTI Records 40th Anniversary” celebration, saluting storied producer Creed Taylor. “All Blues” is an undeniable classic. The Ron Carter date, from 1973, features Roland Hanna on piano, Billy Cobham on drums, an appearance by Richard Tee, and the great Joe Henderson on tenor saxophone. Carter’s compositions are always classy and soulful, and he effortlessly parses licks of funk and R&B as part of the requisite CTI sound, but here the master bassist stays true to his calling, with his signature stretched bass notes and straight-ahead jazz grooves. (6 tracks; 36:05 minutes)
