Benny Carter in Europe . . All these recordings were made in the first half of 1936 in Paris or London. Carter went over to play and arrange for the Willie Lewis Band and then to work for the BBC Radio Orchestra.  These are fantastic records of his own arranging and playing (alto, tenor, clarinet, piano and trumpet) with a variety of musicians including Joe Hayman, Bobby Martin, Tommy McQuarter, Andy McDevitt, Buddy Featherstonaugh, Bernard Addison and Gene Rogers

This is Part 4 of my five part series on Time Life’s Giants of Jazz.  Today you’ll hear Teddy Wilson, Earl Hines, Benny Carter, plus six tracks from one set called “The Guitarists”.   The latter includes six of the earliest jazz guitarists who pioneered the use of this instrument in dances and records.   You’ll hear recordings by Charlie Christian, Lonnie Johnson, Django Reinhardt, Oscar Aleman, Eddie Durham, and Eddie Lang.

As usual, I add a Canadian entry, imagining what it might look like if there were a similar series on early Canadian jazz.  The nominee this week is Mart Kenney and the Western Gentlemen.

My Man Benny, Benny Carter That Is

This week we celebrate the birthday of the multi-talented Benny Carter. He was a composer, arranger, saxophonist, and he played the trumpet too. He was also a great bandleader. He was born on August 8, 1907. My title comes from a cd that Benny recorded with fellow saxophonist Phil Woods. It was a double CD set and each musician wrote a song and dedicated it to the other. Benny's song was called My Man Phil and Phil's was called My Man Benny. I thought you might think this was a show about the clarinetist so I attempted to make it a little clearer. There is some great music on the show today and as usual we'll learn about the career of Mr. Benny Carter. Please visit this podcast at http://bigbandbashfm.blogspot.com

With Johnny Hodges, he was a pioneer on the alto saxophone. From the beginning of his career in the 1920s he was a popular arranger, having written charts for Fletcher Henderson's big band that shaped the swing style.
