Nobody sounds like Ron Carter. An obvious sound, strings that vibrate sensitively to create the longest jazz notes that seem to dance in weightlessness... While his double bass produces a lively groove similar to an electric bass, Payton Crossley resonates his cymbals, Jimmy Green his tenor saxophone and pianist Renee Rosnes her choruses. This is the recipe of the Foursight Quartet.

"That's precisely why every concert is such a challenge. We almost always play for 35 to 40 minutes without stopping. No breaks, just slight changes that signal the start of a new track. If we were a classical band, this would be called a five-movement symphony. That kind of thing only works with this band! The phrases are called "Cominando", a crackling hardbop structure that transports the spirit of the 1960s to the 21st century in the space of a few time measurements".

The quartet pays tribute to the late pianist Geri Allen with the bluesy "Nearly", and Chet Baker, the antipode of Miles Davis, with "You And the Night". Who hasn't Ron Carter played with? "A lot of my colleagues are still concentrating on their solos. I concentrate on the music and this very special moment. When I reach it, I rejoice every time! The zenith as a permanent state."

Marcus Miller

Every Marcus Miller appearance on stage is an event in a world that is somewhere between Funk, Soul and modern Jazz... His many collaborations with the greats - Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Carlos Santana to name but a few - have shaped his musical environment. To our great delight, we welcome him back to the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo’s stage, where he will join Ron Carter's quartet.
