You already know Carter is an iconic bassist. And, well, even if you don't, chances are you own a record that features his playing—the guy continues to hold the title of "most recorded jazz bassist" (Miles Davis! A Tribe Called Quest!). The vet's been leading several sparkling ensembles the past few years, but no word yet as to who's on hand here at his 80th birthday celebrations. Regardless, you can rest assured the talent will be world-class.
