UPC: 760137521495

This is a veritable treasure from the Sonet archives - the legendary Benny Carter playing an informal, hugely swinging session with an all-star group. It presents The King at his superlative best.

Backed by Nat Adderley on trumpet, Red Norvo on vibraphone, Horace Parlan on piano, Red Mitchell on bass and Ronnie Gardiner on drums, Benny Carter leads this lively sextet through a memorable programme of standards from the Great American Songbook plus the jazz classics "Work Song" and "Lover Man." The musicians on the session are clearly inspired by Benny's leadership and brilliant musicianship.
