Four of the world’s most respected musicians, all honored as NEA Jazz Masters, come together for a memorable night of jazz… live from New York’s Sweet Basil, one of the most prestigious and historic jazz clubs anywhere! This state-of-the-art production marks the first time these legendary musicians have played together on the same stage.

“Their exquisite ensemble playing. ..provides us with an exhilarating evening of jazz.”– SWING JOURNAL/Japan

This is truly a dream band of Jazz Legends, with Ron Carter on bass, Art Farmer on trumpet and flugelhorn, Cedar Walton on piano and Billy Higgins on drums. An exhilarating concert, with all of them performing at their peak. They achieve a swinging ensemble sound, while maintaining a delightful interplay in their solo spots.

“This is a gem. It’s one you’ll want to play repeatedly.” – The Denver Post, Jeff Bradley

Except for a scintillating version of the classic My Funny Valentine, the show’s theme song (Ron Carter’s It’s About Time), and original songs by the other featured players, were composed especially for this event. Rare rehearsal sessions and illuminating interviews give a new insight into these men and their music.

“Their exquisite ensemble playing provides us with an exhilarating evening of jazz.” – Swing Journal/Japan
