Ron carter: a selected discography

Ron Carter is the consummate sideman, and one of the most active accompanists in the history of jazz. But Carter has also been a leader on many important recordings over the last forty-six years. On 53 sessions starting in the early 1960s, Carter has taken the helm with many of the finest jazz players of the modern era -- Eric Dolphy, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Chet Baker and Art Farmer, among others -- working under his direction. Tom Lord, the editor of The Jazz Discography, provides us with the following survey of releases issued under Carterís name as a leader. For a complete discography covering Ron Carter's entire career, check out The Jazz Discography, the most comprehensive general jazz discography ever published, encompassing more than 400,000 recordings made since Edison first spun a cylinder.
