Benny Carter: Four Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz here presents four classic Benny Carter albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. "Benny Carter, Jazz Giant", "Swingin’ The 20’s", "Sax Ala Carter!" and "Aspects"

Giants don’t come much bigger than Benny Carter, except maybe for Ben Webster………….and we’ve got them both together for our first album on this fine CD set! A stunning line up join our giants for these sessions recorded in 1957 & 1958. Frank Rosolino on trombone, Andre Previn on piano (an underrated jazz pianist!), Barney Kessel on guitar, Leroy Vinegar on bass and Shelly Manne on drums. Old meets new for our next selection "Swingin’ The 20’s", Benny is joined by legendary pianist Earl Hines for their first recorded session together. These two seasoned jazz men here show they are unafraid to take on the modern guys here represented by Leroy Vinegar and Shelly Manne………the set was completely improvised………..the quartet just played! Another quartet but, a different approach for "Sax Ala Carter!" recorded in 1960…..standards in a relaxed style are the order of the day. Benny is joined by Jimmy Knowles on piano, Leroy Vinegar on bass and Mel Lewis on drums. All change again for these sessions from 1958 & 1959, Benny gathers together his first big band since the 1940’s for "Aspects". This time of course it would not be a touring band but a recording band. The members were all handpicked from Hollywoods finest musicians solely for the purpose of making the record. Among the musicians were Shorty Sherock, Pete Condoli, Tommy Pederson, Buddy Colette and Shelly Manne.

All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality! (AVID Entertainment)

Benny Carter: Jazz Giant (CD: Contemporary- US Import)Benny Carter: Jazz Giant (CD: Contemporary- US Import)
Though he moved to Hollywood more than four decades ago, Benny Carter transcends any geographical style; for more than a half century, he has been just what he is called in this album--a giant of every jazz era. Here he displays three of his many talents, principally as an alto saxophonist, but also as composer on two numbers and trumpeter on two. The company he kept, with Ben Webster and Frank Rosolino rounding out the front line, and such fellow giants as André Previn, Barney Kessel, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne in the rhythm section (Jimmy Rowles replaces Previn on two tracks), left no doubt that this album would be a milestone in straight-ahead, small-group mainstream jazz.

Benny Carter: Meets Oscar Peterson (CD: Pablo)Benny Carter: Meets Oscar Peterson (CD: Pablo)
A whippersnapper of only 79 when he recorded this album with Oscar Peterson in 1986, Benny Carter continued to astonish the world with his power and creativity. Peterson welcomed Carter's suggestion that they record together after a hiatus of many years. The rhythm section is Peterson's working trio of the mid-1980s, augmented on guitar by Oscar's frequent partner Joe Pass. The repertoire consists of standards and a blues, all converted into expressions of the personalities of these giants. (Proper Music)

Benny Carter: Sax A La Carter (CD: United Artists/ Blue Note)
This 1960 session by composer-arranger-saxophonist Benny Carter is a refreshingly straight-ahead blowing date with Carter on alto sax backed by a first class rhythm section (Jimmy Rowles, Leroy Vinnegar and Mel Lewis) on 12 standards. Added to the original album are two previously unissued Carter compositions from this session, one of which (Ennui) features his debut on soprano saxophone. On CD for the first time, this album was mastered in 24 bit from the original analog masters. (Blue Note Records)
