Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes

In 2004, bassist Ron Carter asked Dan Ouellette about writing his biography. Two years of interviews with Ron, his fellow musicians, family and friends followed, and Dan started working with ArtistShare to complete the book.

A complete timeline of the book can viewed at Dan’s ArtistShare project site and you can order the book from there as well. There are even a few videos.

We’re looking forward to reading it and can only imagine the stories about one of the most legendary bassists of all time, who can be heard on over 2,500 recordings.

A limited number of copies are also available on
