Dan Morgenstern once put it about as well as it could be done: "When Bennett Lester Carter first took up an instrument, Louis Armstrong had yet to make his first records with King Oliver, young Duke Ellington had yet to come to New York to seek his fortune, and Fletcher Henderson had yet to form his first big band." If Carter wasn't present at the creation, he was there by the time the kid had learned to walk.
