Format: Audio CD
It's not bad, but I don't find it particularly compelling either. Nowhere near as wonderful a late 50s Benny Carter album as JAZZ GIANT, and also not anywhere near as great a jazz big band recording as Art Pepper (+ ELEVEN) came up with around the same time. Carter couldn't find songs he wanted to cover for EVERY month of the year for this concept album, so a few of them are originals, and those (especially "August Moon" and "Swingin' in November") turn out to be the most interesting things on this album to my ears. Note: The last four tracks are mono versions.

Although there's a lot of fine examples of Carter's alto playing on this album, his arranging skills are actually on display, and he also wrote four of the most satisfying charts.
There are also some interesting solos by other musicians (Frank Rosolino, for example), but this is primarily a (more than just fine) big band album.
Forget the silly cover design and enjoy the delicate and ellegant swing provided by Benny Carter.
