Personnel: Benny Carter (alto saxophone); Art Hillery (organ); Joe Pass (guitar); Andy Simpkins (bass); Ronnie Bedford (drums).
Recorded at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California on August 20, 1988.
With the exception of one song, Benny Carter had never previously recorded with an organist during his first 60 years on record. This Pablo set teams the classic Carter alto with organist Art Hillery and guitarist Joe Pass in a fine quintet. Actually, other than the instrumentation, there is little unusual about this date. On four Carter compositions and two standards, Benny Carter (who was nearing age 81) is in typical flawless form, swinging effortlessly. ~ Scott Yanow
