Description

The music on this CD (8 tunes; 67 min) has never been previously released. The CD contains three sessions with tenor saxophonist Ben Webster, recorded live at the Stampen jazz club in Stockholm, in 1969, 1971 and 1973. On each of these quintet sessions he is joined by at least one of the following major jazz stars: pianist Teddy Wilson, trumpeter Roffe Ericson, bassist Red Mitchell or drummer Ed Thigpen. The repertoire consists of five standard favorites which Webster played as a member of the Duke Ellington orchestra, plus one bebop tune. The numbers average over eight minutes in length, allowing Ben and his fellow soloists to really stretch out. Ben Webster was obviously enjoying himself on these gigs - one can hear him shouting out approval to his group members - and you will, too.
