Ron Carter

Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes

Streaming Date: October 21, 2022
Episodes: 1
Genre: Documentary, Biography

Discover the life and music of jazz luminary Ron Carter, the most recorded bassist in history. Filmed over the course of six years, “Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes” invites viewers to meet the gentleman behind the bass. Best known as the rhythmic anchor in Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet, Carter has since amassed more than 2,500 musical credits over a prolific six-decade career. His unmistakable melody and timbre accompany the likes of Chet Baker, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack, Paul Simon and A Tribe Called Quest. 

Carter approaches every challenge with immovable grace and dedication, even in the face of discrimination and great personal loss. An early rejection from the segregated tenet of classical music only emboldened Carter’s innovation across all genres of music. Featuring original concert footage and candid interviews with jazz legends such as Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins and Jon Batiste, “Finding the Right Notes” is a vibrant portrait of one of America’s great musical trailblazers. 

RON CARTER: FINDING THE RIGHT NOTES is produced by Partisan Pictures in association with PBS.
