Warm Moods [Collectables]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The veteran tenor Ben Webster had a very warm tone on ballads that contrasted with the aggressive biting sound he used on faster material. For this 1960 set, Webster is joined by a string quartet arranged by Johnny Richards and a rhythm section for his melodic interpretations of a dozen standards. Even when simply stating the melody, Webster brings out unexpected beauty in the songs. His tone has never been accurately duplicated and is the main reason to pick up this CD reissue.
