Benny Carter Virtual Exhibit: Eight Decades In American Music
From the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University comes this digital exhibit of Benny Carter. This is one of five exhibits co-produced by the Institute and the Dana Library Media and Digital Services and is technically an online exhibit based on an exhibit at Dana Library earlier in 1999. The library exhibit was curated by the now retired IJS Associate Director Ed Berger who, along with his father Morroe, was close friends with Benny and wrote the definitive Benny Carter discography “A Life In American Music”. Ed also served as Carter’s record producer and road manager for many years. The IJS via a donation from Benny has many of his recordings, band charts, photos and other memorabilia.
