"The musicians are:
Benny Carter, Milt Jackson, Joe Pass, Tommy Flanagan, and John B. Williams / Jake Hanna alternate on drums.
Like the Verve "3, 4, 5 Small Group Sessions", every track is perfect. The musicians are different however, and the mix of Joe Pass and Tommy Flanagan with Benny Carter is more unusual than a "blended" style. This recording, along with the Art Tatum "The Complete Pablo Group Masterpieces" are tied for my 2nd favorite recordings of Benny Carter."

""The King" is a great recording by Benny Carter. I think album to be one of my favorites by him. I rank it up there with "The Small Group Sessions" and "Further Definitions." I find this recording, like "Further Definitions," to be a very beneficial listen for the simple fact there are so many layers and something to discover every time you hear it, but that's the key to a great jazz albums isn't it? Carter is joined by Milt Jackson on vibes, Joe Pass on guitar, Tommy Flanagan on piano, John B. Williams on bass, and Jake Hanna on drums. An all-around superb session. Highly recommended."
