Product Description

Orfeu by Ron Carter

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

For nearly 40 years, Ron Carter has been jazz's most in-demand and well-traveled bassist: from Miles Davis's Someday My Prince Will Come to A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory. Along the way, Carter has recorded several projects featuring Brazilian music. On this recording, Carter, along with pianist Stephen Scott, tenor saxophonist Houston Person, guitarist Bill Frisell, drummer Payton Crossley, and percussionist Steve Kroon apply jazz forms to Afro-Brazilian samba rhythms. As a frequent visitor to Brazil and as a devoted student of that country's music traditions, Carter and his crew deliver a subtle, laid-back CD that combines the best of both worlds. Carter's "Saudade," which roughly translates from Portuguese as "longing," highlights the Iberian character with its mournful melody. His other tunes "Por-do-sol," "Samba De Orfeu," and "Obrigado" make the Rio De Janeiro/Bahia-born rhythms swing with their festival-parade soul intact. On Jobim's "Manha De Carnaval," from the motion picture Black Orpheus, Person's broad and breathy tenor solo echoes Stan Getz's floating melodies. Carter's "1:17 Special," dedicated to the African-American "underground railroad" and Dvorak's "Goin' Home," ring with the spirituals and the blues, peppered by the percussive percolations brewed by Carter's buttery bass tones and the rhythmic relations from Brazil. --Eugene Holley Jr.

.. and although the jukebox has 5 other cds, this one keeps on playing! The music is in the best tradition of Carter's past recordings ('So What','The Bass and I'). Quiet, cool jazz, now with a touch of Latin culture. Certainly his bass is superb, his quiet hand is behind the band in every note, but it's not a 'bass plus five' band, it's a real sextet with carefully arranged solos for each instrument. Special thanks to Bill Frisell for excellent electric guitar solos. Also, the album is very carefully produced, so the bass sounds natural on any kind of equipment.

This is an excellently recorded ensemble playing great tunes... The production is close to stellar and the addition of Bill Frisell makes a nice icing on the cake... This is a very relaxing, brazilian CD. Again, Frisell's guitar moves the music to intrigue with relaxed confidence.

I enjoyed this CD quite a bit. There's lots of mellow bossa on this CD with a little hot samba and jazz mixed in. Has some nice tenor sax solos, and of course great bass solos. Very enjoyable.
