BENNY CARTER: In The Mood for Swing

Benny Carter

with
Dizzy Gillespie, trumpet
Howard Alden, guitar
George Mraz, bass
Roland Hanna, piano
Louie Bellson, drums

Title

All 11 of the songs are somewhat obscure and therefore fresh Carter compositions ("Summer Serenade" is perhaps the best-known) and Dizzy Gillespie sits in with the group for three songs. But even with Gillespie, guitarist Howard Alden and pianist Roland Hanna, the solo star throughout is the ageless Benny Carter, who at the age of 80 still seemed to be improving. --Scott Yanow, AllMusic Guide
