BBB & Co - Benny Carter w/ Ben Webster & Barney Bigard
Jazz | Label: Swingville/OJC | APE, Cue, cover | PT: 1:15:46 | 94,4 + 85,5 MB
release: 1993 (orig. 1962)
This is a great set from 1962 featuring three of the finest jazz soloists of all time: Webster (tenor), Carter (alto), and Bigard (clarinet). This is one of Benny Carter's last jazz recordings before he began writing for the studios
The tracks are bluesy: especially fine is the 12min line of "You Can't Tell the Difference [after dark]." Jazz fans can't go wrong with this CD; plus, it's a good introduction to cool jazz for novices. Highly recommended.
