Read "Ron Carter: Antonin Dvorak: New World Symphony" reviewed by William Ellis

"My record of import is one I heard in 1962 when I heard the melody played by Yusef Lateef on oboe. I later found out the record he made on this disc was called “Goin' Home" which is one of the movements from a Dvorak Symphony. So I went out and bought the disc--that would have ...

Well--I've been around for a long time, and during the time when I got started there were no such things as albums so there were no covers! This was the time of the 78 recording with three minute at tops for each recording so whatever the person was going to present they had to present it ...

"It's called L'ascension by Olivier Messiaen who was a French composer I have loved for most of my life. Why I love his compositions is he shows that music has always existed.

Humans only stole it.

We borrowed it -but it's in nature. It holds the universe together, ask any skylark or ...

She was my hero, she was my mentor, she was my idol. I got to know her very very well and I was very proud that I did, because she was a real buddy of mine.
