SIMON WOOLF QUINTET

Tribute to Jazz legend Benny "King" Carter

Bennett Lester Carter (August 8, 1907 – July 12, 2003) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinettist, trumpeter, composer, arranger, and bandleader. ..... In the 20s Carter provided arrangements for Fletcher Henderson that were pivotal in shaping the music of the swing era. He remained active well into his 90s and was nominated for eight Grammy Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Simon Woolf made his debut on the London stage as a boy soprano appearing and recording alongside Joan Sutherland, Janet Baker and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. While studying Music at York University under Wilfred Mellors he moved down a few octaves fulfilling a childhood ambition by taking up the double bass. Known for his lyrical solos he has in recent years toured with such leading American soloists as Harry Allen, Howard Alden, Chris Cheek and Grant Stewart. These days he is more often found at the piano and it is here you will see him for tonight’s concert for which he has also provided arrangements and the occasional composition.
