Description by OLDIES.com:
One of the giant figures in jazz history, Benny Carter was an extraordinary multi-talented musician who mastered every facet of jazz by the time he was in his early 20s. He was a trendsetting arranger, bandleader, and composer, plus a virtuoso soloist on both alto sax and trumpet. Fifty years later, his youthful, fluid tone still intact, he leads a swinging quintet of seasoned innovators in this concert of jazz standards. The group performs exuberant versions of "Take the A Train'" and "Honeysuckle Rose," a lush "On Green Dolphin Street" and a poignant "Misty."
The incredible career of Benny Carter saw him light up the 20th Century with some masterful works. His music dates back to the 1920s, where he scored songs for jazz luminaries such as Count Basie and Duke Ellington among others. He has also committed to exhaustive touring schedules, film scores, and a whole lot more.
