Ron Carter has worked tirelessly for the last 50+ years! Even from his career beginnings in the early 1960s, he was working with the best names in the business and appearing on highly important jazz albums, most notably probably Herbie Hancock's albums and with the Miles Davis Quintet, of which Ron was a crucial member during the late 60s as the quintet pushed the boundaries of the jazz genre. However, he literally appeared on hundreds of albums as a session player over the years, so it's a good chance a jazz album from a significant artist might have Ron's bass playing. Hip-hop listeners might also recognize his name from A Tribe Called Quest's "Verses From The Abstract" for which he provided the laidback bassline and got a lyric shoutout from Q-Tip. Being a very tall man, during performance he seems to have an effortless command over his instrument. The fact that he is still touring today shows how dedicated he is to his craft. Definitely a hugely respectable jazz legend!
