About This CD

Evening Star Records is pleased to announce the release of this new double CD: the first live recording by alto masters Benny Carter and Phil Woods. Another Time, Another Place (ES-104) captures the saxophonists in peak form at the Regattabar in Cambridge, MA. Recorded over three nights in March of 1996, the album also features Carter regulars Chris Neville on piano and Sherman Ferguson on drums, with premiere Boston bassist John Lockwood. The repertoire includes standards as well as originals by each saxophonist.

Carter and Woods have enjoyed a long-standing friendship, and on the all-too-rare occasions when they perform together each always inspires the other. This mutual inspiration and admiration is clearly evident on their two previous recorded collaborations: the epic 1961 album Further Definitions (MCA/Impulse) and the critically acclaimed 1989 My Man Benny, My Man Phil (MusicMasters).

Another Time, Another Place adds the excitement and spontaneity of an appreciative and responsive live audience. Woods summed up the event as "one of my most fulfilling gigs ever...I am delighted that it has been recorded."
