This extraordinary two-volume work was hailed as a milestone of jazz literature when it was originally published in 1982. Examining both his musical and cultural significance, the authors present the life and career of Benny Carter, one of the most important and versatile figures in jazz. During the past two decades, Carter, in his eighties and nineties, continued to expand his musical realm. In this new edition, Edward Berger has brought the unparalleled Carter saga into the new millennium, adding insider accounts of tours, major concerts, recordings, and other special events. In addition, the new work reveals more of the reticent Carter's complex character and views, gleaned from hundreds of hours of interviews and conversations. The accompanying annotated discography, one of the most comprehensive ever devoted to the work of a single musician, has been thoroughly revised and updated. Dozens of new and previously unpublished photographs have been added.

About the Author:

Edward Berger, associate director of the Institute of Jazz Studies is coauthor of Reminiscing in Tempo [Scarecrow Press, 1990], and Bassically Speaking: An Oral History of George Duvivier [Scarecrow Press, 1993]. He is also co-editor of the Studies in Jazz series and the Annual Review of Jazz Studies, to which he has contributed many articles and reviews. Since 1981, he has frequently served as road manager for Benny Carter, and has produced and annotated many of Carter's recent recordings, including the Grammy-winning Harlem Renaissance and Elegy in Blue CDs.
