Starting Oct. 21 viewers can discover the life and music of jazz luminary Ron Carter, the most recorded bassist in history. Filmed over the course of six years, Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes invites viewers to meet the gentleman behind the bass. Best known as the rhythmic anchor in Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet, Carter has since amassed more than 2,500 musical credits over a prolific six-decade career. His unmistakable melody and timbre accompany the likes of Chet Baker, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack, Paul Simon and A Tribe Called Quest. Carter approaches every challenge with immovable grace and dedication, even in the face of discrimination and great personal loss. An early rejection from the segregated tenet of classical music only emboldened Carter’s innovation across all genres of music. The film features original concert footage and interviews with jazz legends such as Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins and Jon Batiste.
Streaming beginning Oct. 27 is Chef Secrets: The Science of Cooking, featuring a diverse cast of culinary experts, going deep inside the kitchen to reveal the delicious chemistry, physics and microbiology of cooking. Viewers get insider tips and solve some fundamental food mysteries like: Why won’t oil and vinegar mix? How do hot chili peppers trick your brain? What makes a frozen treat stay soft and creamy?
