Further Definitions is a 1961 jazz album by Benny Carter and his orchestra, rereleased on CD in 1997 coupled with his follow-up album, 1966's Additions to Further Definitions. The earlier album is Carter's best-known, recorded with an all-star line-up that included Coleman Hawkins, with whom Carter had recorded in Paris in 1937, using the same configuration of instruments: four saxophones, piano, guitar, bass, and drums.[1]
