An icon of the instrument, a jazz giant, and an insightful educator – Ron Carter discusses his latest book aptly entitled CHARTOGRAPHY (www.RonCarterBooks.com) which transcribes five performances of “Autumn Leaves” as played by Miles Davis' Second Quartet circa 1963-1967. Says Ron: "A single, one-chorus transcription of a bass line you admire cannot help you learn to do it yourself. But if you understand all the elements and the context that went into creating it, you can up your game and learn to write bass lines like the ones that inspired you." Mr. Carter also reflects on; the current state of jazz, the performing arts and education; and how he was never intimidated by the emergence of the electric bass, among other topics.
