Description

Live at Antwerp Jazz Club, Café Samson, Antwerp, Belgium, June 16, 1967 All the material in this exciting album is previously unissued. It is a rare opportunity to hear two swing era giants together in a relaxed club setting for a programme of Jazz standards and quality ballads. The recording also represents a meeting of two great jazz traditions; Ben first achieved fame as a star soloist with Duke Ellington Orchestra in the early 1940s and Buck was the featured trumpeter with Count Basie’s big band from 1936 to 1943. Both subsequently followed freelance careers and their musical paths crossed infrequently making this release a especially valuble musical document.
