"This big band catalog is my testament to my late friend Bob’s all around arranging capacity. He writes the arrangements knowing that the bass parts I will add are the candle on his cake. Enjoy the fun!" -- Ron Carter
Bob Freedman’s arrangements for Ron Carter’s Great Big Band are clever and unique takes on classic tunes. They are challenging yet always very musical and they all provide excellent opportunities for the rhythm section to take the solo sections anywhere they want to go. Bob’s brass writing in particular is very noteworthy. It is always a blast playing these tunes as they perfectly allow Mr. Carter the freedom to do his thing which makes for a memorable experience every time.” -- David DeJesus, Director of the Birdland Big Band
