Description

March 27th 2009 is the 100 years for the birth of the great saxophonist Ben Webster. This will be commemorated especially in Copenhagen, Denmark, where Webster lived his last years. The Ben Webster Foundation celebrates with a great concert and with a new co production with Storyville Records. A double CD, titled The Brute And The Beautiful, will find both sides of Ben Webster with material never or very rarely heard before. The music was put aside for this occasion while Storyville and the Foundation worked in the 8 CD box DIG BEN which has won prizes and much acclaim since it’s release in 2007. The new album contains music recorded in the US by Webster himself, his first appearance on the Continent, ambitious work with strings, rough evenings in clubs, soft ballads, etc. Look forward to hearing the Beautiful Brute in all his splendour.

Reviews

"Absolutely recommended, so buy this cd!" Ben Kragting, Doctor Jazz Magazine
