About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Classic 1961 studio album from the American jazz saxophonist featuring hits such as 'Honeysuckle Rose' and 'Crazy Rhythm'. The alto sax pioneer takes his place in one of the heaviest horn frontlines in jazz history - alongside Phil Woods, Coleman Hawkins and Charlie Rouse, as well as Coltrane bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Jo Jones.

Altoist/arranger Benny Carter's classic Further Definitions is a revisiting, instrumentation-wise, to the famous 1937 session that Carter and tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins made in France with two top European saxophonists (Andre Ekyan and Alix Combelle) and guitarist Django Reinhardt. The all-star group (which also includes Hawkins, altoist Phil Woods, Charlie Rouse on second tenor, pianist Dick Katz, guitarist John Collins, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Jo Jones) performs a particularly inspired repertoire. Carter's charts, which allow Hawkins to stretch out on "Body and Soul," give everyone a chance to shine. "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Crazy Rhythm" hold their own with the 1937 versions, and "Blue Star" and "Doozy" prove to be two of Carter's finest originals. Although Benny Carter was not actively playing much at the time (this was his only small-group recording during 1963-1975), he is heard in typically prime form. Very highly recommended.
