Legends Festival 18

This special gig by three of the best young emerging women players pays tribute to the giant of jazz Benny Carter. Carter had an unusually long career, and was perhaps the only musician to have recorded in eight different decades.[16]Having started a career in music before music was electronically recorded, Carter remained a musician, arranger and composer until he retired from performing in 1997, he died aged 95 in 2003. As a result, he had a very long recordings list with just about everyone, and every jazz style many with singers.
