Legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter leads his new "Foursight" quartet on this live recording from Sweden recorded in November 2018. The group includes drummer Payton Crossley, tenor saxophonist Jimmy Green, the and star pianist Renee Rosnes.

"With us, nobody knows exactly what happens when," Carter praised the Foursight Quartet's unique selling point. "This is precisely why every concert is a real challenge. We almost always play 35 to 40 minutes without a stop at the beginning. No breaks, just slight changes that show the beginning of a new song. If we were a classical music band, it would be called a symphony with five movements. This kind of thing only works with this band!"

The music includes "Cominando", a crackling hardbop structure that transports the spirit of the 1960s into the 21st century within a few bars, "Joshua", is Carter's reminiscence to his old friend and partner Miles Davis, whilst the quartet recalled the late pianist Geri Allen with the blues "Nearly". Carter's bass sound can be heard on 2221 recordings according to the latest entry in the Guinness Book of Records, and a few more no doubt, "It's like giving a private concert in a living room. Or we could be a chamber music ensemble that develops the power of a large orchestra without leaving a certain volume level. We have undoubtedly succeeded in doing so in Stockholm. I really love this CD!"

Personnel: Ron Carter, (bass), Renee Rosnes (piano) Jimmy Greene (tenor saxophone), Payton Crossley (drums)
