Overview

In 2008, Storyville released Benny Carter in Copenhagen, a straight-up reissue of Summer Serenade, an album that was recorded in the capital of Denmark on August 17, 1980, a few days after Carter's 77th birthday. The music taped at that session is an excellent example of Carter's mature artistry. Backed by pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Jesper Lundgaard, and drummer Ed Thigpen (the vocalist on "All That Jazz" is one Richard Boone), Carter uses his saxophone to reinvent several jazz standards, reinterpret several of his own compositions, and reaffirm his place as one of the original architects and longtime sustainers of the jazz tradition. If you missed the original release and the 1994 reissue eluded detection, you might want to pounce on this while it's still readily available.
