The music on this CD is being release here for the first time. These 12 tunes (76 minutes), recorded in London over 4 nights at Ronnie Scott's club in 1964, are Ben Webster's first recordings in Europe. Webster is accompanied by three top British jazz musicians: Stan Tracy on piano, Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums. The repertoire consists of both of Ben Webster standards, like "Cottontail", and three bebop tunes: Miles Davis' "The Theme", Dizzy Gillespie's "Night in Tunisia" and Charlie Parker's "Confirmation". Webster displays deep romanticism - not sentimentality - in his poetic ballads. All in all, this CD is a joy to hear.

Ben Webster - tenor sax, Stan Tracy - piano, Rick Laird - bass, Jackie Dougan - drums
