Benny Carter's MusicMasters catalogue turned up some fine sessions in which colleagues included Clark Terry, Hank Jones, and Doc Cheatham, among a raft of musicians - for the stellar singers, see the end of this review. The recordings, made in various locations, span the years 1990-95 and reveal the altoist seemingly unruffled by the reach of Time, still spinning some sublime and harmonically darting lines as if for the first time.

This boxed set of four CDs recorded between 1987 and 1989 illustrates Benny Carter's versatility performing with four different groups. He was already aged 80 when he recorded the first of these albums, yet there is no sign of ageing. Indeed, Benny stayed alive and active until he was 95. From the very first track, the listener is struck by Carter's pure, mellow sound, putting him in contention with Johnny Hodges and Willie Smith as one of the three altoists in jazz with the sweetest tone. This CD also exhibits Benny as a composer, since he wrote all eleven tunes. Dizzy Gillespie makes guest appearances on three tracks, playing with restraint and harmonizing well with Carter.

Benny Morris e Ian Black - Mossad. Le guerre segrete di Israele
Italian | Rizzoli | 2013 | ASIN: B00G677G6C | 669 pages | EPUB | 2 MB

"Non esiste, con ogni probabilità, una nazione sulla Terra che, in rapporto alla sua estensione e popolazione, produca, analizzi e consumi tante informazioni militari quanto Israele.” Muovendo da questo spunto, Benny Morris e Ian Black hanno tracciato la storia dei servizi segreti israeliani dalla loro nascita negli anni Trenta, prima ancora della fondazione dello Stato ebraico, alla guerra del Golfo. Avvalendosi di un ricco apparato di fonti – documenti, giornali, diari privati, memoranda – e di interviste rilasciate da ex agenti dell’intelligence, gli autori hanno sfidato le rigide leggi di Israele in materia di censura militare, dando vita alla più equilibrata, approfondita e obiettiva indagine sui servizi segreti di quel paese.

In a small town, an auto mechanic named Benny is devoted to taking care of his mentally ill sister, Joon, who can barely function alone in the real world despite being a talented artist. This relatively stable situation is shaken up when Benny is obliged in a poker game to welcome another player's relative, Sam, to his home for a few days. When Sam arrives, he quickly makes an impression with his quietly eccentric ways which emulate the antics of the great silent movie comedian, Buster Keaton. Without Benny's full knowledge, Sam and Joon find themselves drawn to each other to the fullest degree. However when Benny finds out, it creates a rift in the siblings as they struggle to accept their relationship is profoundly changing with the presence of this odd newcomer.

Benny Green & Russell Malone - Jazz at the Bistro (2003)  Music

Russell Malone can play it all — rock, pop, country, blues, jazz — you name it. But as anyone who has heard his recording knows, he's most at home (and comfortable) when he's playing jazz. And we as listeners are rewarded with some of the most beautiful sounds, tones and phrasing possible on the guitar. On Jazz at The Bistro, Malone is joined by pianist Benny Green. While live recordings in small rooms (and St. Louis's The Bistro is a small club) can be even more difficult to properly record than "regular" live recordings, Jazz At The Bistro is an excellent testament to Malone's and Green's virtuosity.
