With "Kansas City Suite&" and "The Legend" Benny Carter demonstrated his masterly grasp of the essential style of the Count Basie band. Both albums consist of Carter originals written especially for Basie and in almost every case, Carter established the archetypal Basie approach a smoothly mellifluous riff by the saxophones, which is then worked over by Basie and his soloists. Some of the music is more typically Basie than typically Carter, but each track stands up well on its individual merits, notably The Legend, whose rich, moody, Ellingtonian harmonies are striking. In a fine exhibition of the Basie style, garnished with the charm and elegance for which Carter was renowned, the band shows, once again, its sonic wealth and ensemble precision. And, to complete the picture, there are brilliant soloists like Joe Newman, Frank Foster, Thad Jones, Budd Johnson, Henry Coker and Marshall Royal (who plays lead alto sax, and gets a sound very much like Carter's own).
