New Release, “Finding The Right Notes” On Vinyl

Published

on

IN+OUT Records releases the original soundtrack of the Ron Carter documentary film on 180-gram double vinyl today.

Six years in the making, the documentary film of the most comprehensive look into the life of jazz bassist Ron Carter arrived on October 21. Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes was produced and directed by the renowned producer/director Peter Schnall, a seven-time Emmy Award and Peabody Award winner. 

Schnall reveals poignant and joyful details of the jazz maestro’s life, from his early years as a cello student in high school through his years in the Miles Davis Quintet of the ‘60s and into his vital solo career that continues to expand. In addition to the television broadcast premiere, the exclusive soundtrack of never-before heard Carter performances were released on CD on October 21 by Freiburg, Germany-based IN+OUT Records, which also releases the soundtrack on double vinyl today. The 2-LP version includes ”Nearly,” a bonus song not on the CD that features Carter’s touring band: pianist Renee Rosnes, saxophonist Jimmy Greene and drummer Payton Crossley.

The album includes a live performance filmed at the Newport Jazz Festival of Carter’s classic original “Soft Winds,” and an impromptu bass duet of “Willow Weep for Me” with Christian McBride at The National Jazz Museum in Harlem. There are also tunes from two New York Blue Note club sessions with Bill Frisell on “My Man’s Gone Now” and a first-time recording with fellow bassist Stanley Clarke on “Bag’s Groove.” The most rewarding recording comes when Carter meets up with Jon Batiste at the Power Station studio for a conversation and ultimately a song: “Sweet Lorraine.”
