One of Ron Carter's best releases to date under the Blue Note label this album shows that Mr.Carter still has much under his sleeve to show the world. This is a very complete album the tunes vary, with powerful solos by the Man himself and some tunes where he allows the entire Quintet to shine, he is obviously more layed back on this album sometimes not even playing a solo just adding more color and dimension. When his solo's DO come up however it shows us what we've known all along Ron Carter can play just about anything from the first Slide or Trill even a Grace note entrance the solo will keep you captivated wondering whats next and how can he top that these solos keep you on your toes. From Latin flavor to standard Jazz practice he can play in any enviroment any style. The Vibe playing by Joe Locke also adds color to some older Carter compositions, on "Nearly" Locke's Vibe solo brings a whole new dimension to this tune. Benny Golson and his Tenor Sax deliver smooth hypnotizing solos, Sir Roland Hanna on piano, and Lenny White rounding out the Rhythim section this Quintet's playing can appeal to all types of Jazz listeners, young and old. Ron Carter shows us that there is still much we can learn from him and his playing as listeners and musicians.
---By the way a note to Mr.Carter the shorter hairstyle is fresh, keep it you've always been the slickest... -The Younger Generation

Tad, my boy, don't let the man Ron Carter ever hear you say that it is "ironic" that he's paying tribute to THE MAN Oscar Pettiford. What's worse, don't ever let Ron know that you hold him with higher regard than you hold OP--Ron must think that you must be outta your head!!! I have never met a jazz bassist in my life (and I myself am one) who has taken Ron over Oscar!!! Ron himself would laugh at even the suggestion. Pettiford wasn't only a giant of the 50's--he was a giant of the bass--period. Many jazz bassists consider Pettiford the supreme musician--polished in every single way--many of us still consider him the greatest that the instrument has yet to produce--the Art Tatum of bass, if you may. That Ron did this album is a lifelong dream come true for many jazz bassists. When OP passed away in 1960, Ron, whether he knew it or not, largely helped in continuing the Blanton-Pettiford tradition. Three players comprise the holy triumvirate of golden age jazz bass: Pettiford, Mingus, and Brown. In his approach and conception, Carter comes closest to Pettiford. Listen to Carter's rendition of "Stardust" on this LP, then listen to Pettiford's rendition on his "Another One" LP and you will understand where I'm coming from. Many critics seem to forget the extreme dominant force that Pettiford once represented--he is to the upright what Jaco would later become to the electric. This is an absolutely beautiful Ron Carter album. Pettiford's renditions of both "The Man I Love" and "Stardust" have become the definitive versions for jazz bassists, and Ron takes a stab at both. His covers of the Pettiford originals are equally beautiful--though no one will ever play a better version of "Blues in the Closet" than Pettiford did at the 1960 Essen Jazz Fest with Bud Powell and Kenny Clarke, it is good to know that Mr. Carter is keeping the spirit alive and well!!!

After so many years in the business, Ron Carter might be taken for granted. But it can't be overstated--this is an absolutely great musician who shines in every situation, whether in support in the rhythm section or out front. His solos on this record have a drive and momentum that not too many bassists are capable of. And he put together a great band here, all of whom are playing at their best. In particular Benny Golson shows what a master he is, bringing the spirit of Lester Young to a modern setting with grace, beauty and power.

Whenever I hear a record like this, I just think...this is why I love this music so much.

This CD is vintage Ron Carter,and friends,and should be listened to by all jazz music lovers. The different artist that are playing on this CD are ""First Rate"" period,and their collaborations are out of this world.

A must have for Jazz fans.
