Masters of Jazz, Vol. 5

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This entry in Storyville's Masters of Jazz series which does not duplicate his Plays Duke Ellington and Plays Ballads albums alternates ballads and stomps to give listeners a well-rounded picture of Ben Webster during his last period. Webster is joined by trios led by pianists Kenny Drew and Teddy Wilson, interacts with a drumless piano-bass duo, plays with a Scandinavian quartet, romps with The Danish Radio Big Band on two numbers and is accompanied on "Going Home" and "Come Sunday" by a string orchestra. These Copenhagen recordings find the great tenor in consistently fine form.
