The Storyville label's No Fool, No Fun is the definitive version of a recording previously released on Spotlite as a dodgy pirate. These 25 tracks contain a complete rehearsal of the great tenor big man Ben Webster, near the end of his life, with the Danish Radio Big Band and singers Matty Peters and Freddy Albeck. Here are numerous takes of all the material used in the concert a couple of days later, including instructions shouted out by Webster attempting to get the band in shape for the performance. Certainly, the fact that multiple takes are stacked one after another and that the flow is often broken up by new arrangements or flubs by part of the band (or simply by ...

Certainly, the fact that multiple takes are stacked one after another and that the flow is often broken up by new arrangements or flubs by part of the band (or simply by Webster changing his mind) will prove challenging listening to anyone who is not a serious student or aficionado of jazz, or a Webster fanatic.

[The Storyville version of No Fool, No Fun features six bonus alternate takes of "Faberge."]
