STORYVILLE VINYL REMASTERS
LIMITED EDITION 180 GRAM VIRGIN VINYL
Benny Carter has recorded so many excellent swing sessions throughout his lengthy career that it is very difficult to pick out the best ones; there's too much competition. However, this one could well be among the chosen ones. Summer Serenade, recorded on a Sunday in August of 1980, matches Benny's alto with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Jesper Lundgaard and drummer Ed Thigpen for four of Carter's originals and three standards. Richard Boone sings only on the good-humored "All That Jazz."
