Ron Carter: Antonin Dvorak: New World Symphony

William Ellis By

"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 to be done by Leonard Bernstein and The New York Philharmonic when they do the four movements of the Dvorak New World Symphony—and among these four movements is that melody called "Goin' Home."

The story is that Antonin Dvorak came to the States—to New York, heard some blues people and went back to his hometown in Europe and wrote this melody—we call it "Goin' Home." I've since recorded it on a record of mine call Orfue with Bill Frisell on guitar, Houston Person on saxophone and my working quartet. It's a great view of a classical melody interpreted by jazz musicians who are always—going home."
