Benny Carter on Jazz Profiles (December 24-25)

In a career that spanned eight decades, 1986 Jazz Master Benny Carter (1907-2003) became, by any standard, a jazz legend. Carter, Don Redman, and Fletcher Henderson were the first to pioneer arrangements for the big band in jazz. Together with Charlie Parker and Johnny Hodges, he is regarded as the most influential alto saxophonists in jazz.
