Benny Carter. 3,4,5: The Verve Small Group Sessions (1991; recorded at various times much earlier)

These feature Carter with various combinations, trios, quartets, and quintets, mostly involving the great Teddy Wilson and Papa Jo Jones. The repertory choice of standards tends toward the classics like "Tenderly" and "Our Love is Here to Stay." This is "comfort music."
