Benny plays alto and does the backings, Oscar adds in the piano – and the album's a lush, warm session with a really dreamy feel! The core group features Peterson at the keys, with bass from Ray Brown, guitar from Barney Kessel, and drums from Buddy Rich – all supporting Carter's sweet tones on the alto, and a rich backdrop of strings with a lonely and sentimental feel. Carter's alto is right up front in the mix, and Oscar's pretty much in the background, shading in the empty spaces with light colors and tones. Titles include "Key Largo
", "Alone Together", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Gone With The Wind", "Some Other Spring", and "These Things You Left Me".
