RON CARTER picture
The epitome of class and elegance, though not stuffy, Ron Carter has been a world class bassist and cellist since the '60s. He's among the greatest accompanists of all time, but has also done many albums exhibiting his prodigious technique. He's a brilliant rhythmic and melodic player, who uses everything in the bass and cello arsenal; walking lines, thick, full, prominent notes and tones, drones and strumming effects, and melody snippets. His bowed solos are almost as impressive as those done with his fingers. Carter has been featured in clothing, instrument, and pipe advertisements; he's close to being the bass equivalent of a Duke Ellington in his mix of musical and extra-musical interests. Carter's nearly as accomplished in classical music as jazz, and has performed with symphony orchestras all over the world. He's almost exclusively an acoustic player; he did play electric for a short time in the late '60s read more...

snobb
It's difficult to imagine what inspired Ron Carter to use John Williams' Star Wars compositions as material for his album. Possibly, combination of well-known tunes with some great jazz/fusion names on recordings sounded as commercially attractive project,who knows.

The result isn't as good as it was possibly expected.Musical material is really more pop-related,even if some moments of jazzy versions could be accepted as slightly interesting. Musicians collaborated are mostly great (including Billy Cobham on drums,Bob James on piano and Crusaders flautist Hubert Laws, who really is star of this recording), but the music played is only very average at its best.

Carter's bass line isn't impressive,but at least are competent (nothing sounds different from his other works of that time though). Cobham's drumming is light and enough jazzy, but again as almost every of participated musicians he sounds there more as studio session musician,paid by hours. In fact, all album's problem is team of really good musicians recorded uninspired market-oriented project and every listener can easily hear it.

Album for Star Wars' fans and Carter's collectors mostly.
