Benny CARTER Quartet - Summer Serenade 1980

Benny CARTER Quartet - Summer Serenade 1980
SLP 4047
Recorded in Copenhagen (Denmark) on August 17, 1980


Benny Carter has recorded so many excellent swing sessions throughout his lengthy career that it is very difficult to pick out the best ones; there's too much competition. This quartet date for the Danish Storyville label matches his alto with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Jesper Lundgaard and drummer Ed Thigpen for four of Carter's originals and three standards. As a bonus, Richard Boone sings the good-humored "All That Jazz."
