This budget LP just contains ten short selections and does not give personnel or exact recording dates. Recorded in London during 1936-37, the brief program does contain more than its share of rewarding moments, most notably the debut recording of Carter’s “When Lights Are Low,” the advanced “Waltzin’ the Blues” (performed at a time when jazz waltzes were unheard of), the atmospheric “Nightfall,” “Just a Mood” and a fine version of “Royal Garden Blues.” Carter is heard throughout, switching between alto, clarinet, tenor and trumpet.
