The Legend (subtitled From the Pen of Benny Carter) is an album by pianist, composer and bandleader Count Basie featuring tracks composed by Benny Carter recorded in 1961 and originally released on the Roulette label. All compositions by Benny Carter.

William James "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others.
