Ron Carter's 'All Blues', his seminal album is now available, remastered using the original two-track analog tapes. The CTI-40th Anniversary Edition is packaged in a softpack sleeve that replicates the original LP and its iconic cover design. Still actively performing, Carter was voted Bassist of the Year in Down Beat s Readers Poll in 1973, 1974 and 1975, highlighting his work with CTI Records.

Many fans call this album Ron Carter's "missing" gem as this album in CD format has never been available in the USA, but on a Japanese label, King Record Co. (KICJ 8067). A favorite Ron Carter CD, this is one of the best CTI recordings of the 70s. With a killer version of "All Blues", and the beautiful piano-centric composition "Light Blue", other standout tracks include the composition "117 Special" which has a 'retro', 1970's percussion sound.
