CARTER Benny

CARTER BENNY, BENNET LESTER (SA-TP).

New York 8/8/1907. – Los Angeles, California. 12/7/2003.

Nato in una famiglia nella quale quasi tutti erano dei musicisti, il piccolo Lester Bennet ha iniziato subito ad interessarsi alla musica. Ha provato a suonare vari strumenti tra i quali il sax alto, del quale è diventato un maestro, poi la tromba che ha anche suonato validamente, il pianoforte ed altri tipi di strumenti ad ancia. A sedici anni, nel 1924, è diventato professionista ed è entrato nell’orchestra di June Clark. In seguito ha avuto modo di suonare in ottimi gruppi come quelli di Earl Hines, Billy Page, Horace Henderson, James P. Johnson, ma le sue partecipazioni più prestigiose sono state quelle nell’orchestra di Duke Ellington nel 1927. Ha fatto parte anche delle orchestre di Charlie Johnson, di Fletcher Henderson e di Chick Webb. Nel 1931 ha assunto la direzione musicale dei “Mc Kinney’s Cotton Pickers” e dopo dei “Chocolate Dandies”. Infine ha fondato una propria orchestra e si è fatto valere soprattutto come arrangiatore, qualità nella quale è maturato e nella quale si è affermato definitivamente scrivendo per le orchestre di Don Redman, di Benny Goodman, di Willie Bryant ed altri. E’ venuto in Europa dove ha collaborato con Willie Lewis a Parigi e con Henry Hall a Londra. Ha girato un pò tutta l’Europa e nel 1938 a Parigi ha registrato con Django Reinhardt e con Coleman Hawkins. E’ rientrato negli Stati Uniti per dirigere una sua orchestra che, oltre ad un organico notevole, si avvaleva dei suoi splendidi assoli e dei suoi perfetti arrangiamenti. Nel 1945 si è stabilito definitivamente ad Hollywood, dove ha iniziato a lavorare alla stesura delle colonne musicali di film, dando il suo notevole contributo al successo di diversi film tra i quali ricordiamo uno autobiografico intitolato “A Life in American Music” diretto dai registi Morroe, Edward Berger e James Patrick, oltre a film di successo come “Le Nevi del Kilimanjaro”, “I Cannoni di Navarone” e “Too Late Blues” di Martin Scorzese, per la serie di telefilm “Ironside” e per quella di Alfred Hitchcock. Nella sua lunga carriera ha collaborato con quasi tutti i grandi personaggi del Jazz: Lionel Hampton, Cab Calloway, Gene Krupa, Fats Waller, Vic Dickenson, Eddie Heywood, Art Tatum, Mezz Mezzrow, Jonah Jones, Bill Coleman, Billy Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan, Max Roach, Tyree Glenn, J. J. Johnson, Shorty Rogers, Dexter Gordon, Don Byas, Roy Eldridge, ed altri. Musicista di grande talento, è stato uno dei più completi e poliedrici personaggi del Jazz. Ha dato il suo notevole contributo a modernizzarlo, cosa che senz’altro lo ha collocato tra i massimi esponenti della storia di questa musica. Come solista era in possesso di grande eleganza, di un sound inimitabile, di grande varietà ritmica e di un’improvvisazione ineguagliabile. Si è ascoltato ancora in piena forma nel suo novantesimo compleanno a Pescara. La sua musica e le sue composizioni sono sempre attuali e continuano ancora a primeggiare. Nel 1994 ha ricevuto la laurea honoris causa dalla Harvard University ed il 29 settembre 1997 è stato insignito dal Presidente Clinton con la “National Medals Of Arts”. Ha registrato anche sotto lo pseudonimo di Billie Carton. “The King” come lo aveva soprannominato Ben Webster.
