Cosmopolite: The Oscar Peterson Verve Sessions
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
These timeless Benny Carter performances match the great altoist with pianist Oscar Peterson, bassist Ray Brown, either Barney Kessel or Herb Ellis on guitar, Buddy Rich, J.C. Heard or Bobby White on drums, and, on four numbers, trombonist Bill Harris. The 17 standards (four of which are also heard in alternate versions) are treated with respect, taste, and swing. Carter always sounds flawless and is in excellent form throughout this enjoyable set.
One Of Benny's Best
Taking time out from scoring movies and TV and arranging for other bands and vocalists, Benny Carter assembles a top notch crew of veteran players and does what he does best, which is being one of the greatest alto stylists in jazz history.
Born: August 8, 1907 in New York, NY
Years Active: '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s
