CD Reviews

An insult to Ben Webster
T. Butler | Chicago, IL United States | 08/22/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This disk is a compilation of select cuts from three other CDs: "Webster Meets Peterson" (6 of 7), "The Tatum Group Masterpieces" (4 of 10) and "Ben And Sweets" (2 of 6). Compilations sometimes are desirable, but not this one. This is one of the worst mastering jobs I have ever heard. The sound is thin and the eq curve is screwed up. The Peterson cuts (the original sounds great) has those problems plus the channels are reversed. On the Tatum cuts a stereoizer is added. The result is just dopey.

Hey Mr. Mastering Engineer - if you don't know how to master..... don't.

Do yourself a favor and get the originals and skip this crap."
