The longer we live, the saying goes, the more we are convinced that the great reputations are deserved. The truly great reputations on alto saxophone in jazz have belonged to Benny Carter, Johnny Hodges, and the late Charlie Parker. And possibly because he has had fewer direct imitators, Carter's real originality shines forth perhaps most boldly of the three. Jazzmen who number him among the great alto players include Erroll Garner, Pete Rugolo, Lester Young, J.J. Johnson, Dizzy Gillespie, and Louis Armstrong. But Carter's reputation does not depend only on the alto, for he has been an outstanding jazz composer-arranger and trumpet soloist as well. Miles Davis (who regularly plays Carter's piece "When Lights Are Low," by the way) has attested that Carter is a whole musical education in himself. And Cannonball Adderley has written of him that "he was one of the first virtuosi...but he makes it look so easy."
