Accent On Swing

Recordings during Carter's European period (1935-1938) before he returned to the US to form two successful bands. From All Music: In 1935, Benny Carter moved to Europe, where in London he was a staff arranger for the BBC dance orchestra (1936-1938); he also recorded in several European countries. Carter's "Waltzing the Blues" was one of the very first jazz waltzes. Enjoy. +

I've hardly been able to keep up with all the music being posted, but I wanted to thank you especially for this. I've been looking around for it for some time.

Featherstonehaugh, by the way, is pronounced Fanshaw.

You're welcome as always. Fanshaw, eh? I doubt I ever would have managed to come up with that pronunciation.

I've heard the next episode (1936-1937), so I would be very glad if you could reload this one of his earlier work. Thank you very much for all your hard work.

Ready to enjoy again!

Ta very much! Looking for Waltzing the Blues everywhere! Now to listen to the rest (only ever heard his 'Nightfall' before)!
