Throughout his Milestone years, Ron Carter proved adept at devising fresh contexts in which to feature his bass and piccolo bass, and in assembling musicians that complemented his own virtuosity and creative notions. Parade is a memorable example of his success in both areas. With the assistance of horn arranger Wade Marcus and a six-piece section of New York's finest, Carter presents warm, celebratory readings of four originals and "Motherless Child." He also assembles an imposing super-quartet that brings together his old Miles Davis sectionmate Tony Williams, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson (who had made Carter a part of many of his own Milestone triumphs), and--in one of his few recorded teamings with the bassist--pianist Chick Corea. The four commune without the supporting horns on "Gypsy," and Henderson burns on "Tinderbox" and the title track.

with Chick Corea, Tony Williams, Jon Faddis, Joe Shepley, John Frosk, Urbie Green, Tom Malone, Jerry Dodgion, Frank Wess
