    Big Ben Webster

    I was fortunate to see Ben Webster perform on stage with Norman Granz¿s ¿Jazz At The Philharmonic¿ in the early 50¿s. At the end of Early Autumn the audience sat in silence, (the highest tribute a performing artist can receive) before bursting into a standing ovation. Ben Webster was the master of the tenor sax ballad. No instrumentalist has had more control of a saxophone. Breathy deep tones slide and glide into the upper register with bends, grace notes and trills. Accompanied by a flawless vibrato. But it¿s style that sets Webster above the others . . . his soul literally comes out the end of his horn. He¿s the master of the ballad because he loved life and jazz. I looked for an album of his ballads for 40 years. Here it is . . . 27 jazz giants are willing, and happy, to sit in the back seat while Webster drives. Including what some feel is the best rhythm section in jazz history: Hank Jones, piano -- Ray Brown, bass -- Jo Jones, drums. Musicians of this caliber, with arrangements by Billy Strayhorn and Ralph Burns, have created a jazz masterpiece. Just listen to My Funny Valentine, When I Fall In Love, Where Are You, etc., and remember a time when music was kind, gentle and loving. Please listen to Ben Webster, tenor sax.
