Benny Carter: Cookin' at Carlos I

Benny Carter

with
Lisle Atkinson, bass
Al Harewood, drums
Richard Wyands, piano

Title
During the late '80s up to the present, Benny Carter (now an octogenarian) has recorded a string of consistently excellent and frequently superb CDs for Jazz Heritage Society. This particular effort is a rare live recording for Carter with his regular group which in 1988 consisted of pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Lisle Atkinson and drummer Al Harewood. The repertoire is typical of his club performances: five standards, a blues and just one of Carter's compositions, "Key Largo." A special treat is Carter's trumpet solo on "Time for the Blues"; otherwise his wonderful alto dominates this fine set. --Scott Yanow, AllMusic Guide
