"Ben is still a whale of a tenor player, his approach for the ballads being as poignant and lyrical as ever.
If you’ve never heard any of these numbers, then you should place the needle on Do Nothin’ Till You Hear From Me or Sophisticated Lady. All other listeners will know that every single minute of this disc is pure magic!
Recorded around a month after the veteran tenor Ben Webster moved to Europe, this high-quality set with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Neils Pederson and drummer Alex Riel features Webster stretching out on the traditional "Londonderry Air," two originals and seven familiar but fresh standards.
