The nickname ”The Brute and the Beautiful” was aptly given to Ben Webster. He became famous for his beautiful sound which gave his ballad playing a unique touch of tenderness, while his playing in faster tempos was virile and filled with growl.
“I’ve heard Ben play in so many settings but to sit down and listen to him play a ballad – nobody who ever played a ballad does a better job than Ben Webster does on it” – Dizzie Gillespie. This particular collection emphasizes Ben’s versatility with an emphasis on ballads. A must for all Ben Webster’s fans.
