The School of Music is honored to welcome jazz legend Ron Carter to the School of Music for a performance/workshop on Friday, May 28, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Brechemin Auditorium.
Widely considered one of the greatest living jazz bassists, Ron Carter has appeared on more than 2,000 albums recording with legendary musicians such as Tommy Flanagan, Gil Evans, Lena Horne, Bill Evans, B.B. King, the Kronos Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Bobby Timmons. As a touring musician in the early 1960s he performed throughout the United States in concert halls and nightclubs with Jaki Byard and Eric Dolphy. He later toured Europe with Cannonball Adderley and from 1963 to 1968 was a member of the classic and acclaimed Miles Davis Quintet, along with Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, and Wayne Shorter.
Carter is in Seattle this week for a three-night engagement at Jazz Alley. His appearance at the School of Music is free and open to the public.
We hope you will be able to take the time to attend this very special event. Thanks for helping to spread the word!
