Benny Carter was my friend. I once asked him how he managed to sustain a career for over seven decades and he said: "Phil! Only go first class!"I thought I would be clever and continued;"And only play with economy?"His eyes twinkled and he said: "Phil! You should have your own TV show!"God bless Benny 'the King" Carter!His widow Hilma always called me the Prince. Heady stuff indeed!
