Ben Webster At Montmartre 1965-1966


Publisher: Storyville Records
Artist: Ben Webster
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance
This CD contains tracks recorded live during two gigs at the Montmatre jazz club in Copenhagen in 1965 and 1966. Except for one original compositon by Webster the repertoire on the CD consists of standards, almost half of which are ballads. A fine improviser, Ben Webster nevertheless always sticks to the melody, throwing in his trademark tonal distortions and variations which include characteristic growls, shouts, bent notes and his famous, airy whisper.The two rhythm sections are comprised of three internationally-acclaimed Danes, one Swede and the famous American pianist Kenny Drew. This wonderful CD serves to strengthen Ben Webster's title as the ballad master of the tenor saxophone, just check out his rendition of Someone To Watch Over Me to see why.
