BBB & Co.

BBB & Co. (subtitled Benny, Ben & Barney) is an album by swing musicians Benny Carter, Ben Webster and Barney Bigard recorded in 1962 and originally released by the Swingville label.


AllMusic awarded the album 4 stars and the review by Scott Yanow stated "All of the swing all-stars are in fine form, making one wish that they were not being so neglected by critics and fans alike during this era; Webster soon left the U.S. permanently for Europe. Although not essential, this set is fun". On NPR Murray Horwitz said "throughout this deceptively simple album... you hear all that musicality in Benny Carter, plus a big dollop of playfulness. It's a wonderfully enjoyable CD"
