    I first became aware of Mr. Caron's music through his old group UZEB via BET (Black Entertainment Television) when that network was still a small upstart cable channel. It was by way of some jazz concerts from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that was filmed there & later broadcasted here. The shows were heavily edited to allow commercials to be also shown to my recollection. It's nice to see he's doing very well with his own music. Keep up the good work Mr. Caron!

    One of my favourite bassists. Pity he is so unknown, he definitely deserves more attention!
