CD Reviews

Hybrid of two?
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It may be that the two nights & the now two CD's recorded live at the Jazzhus were originally released as this CD. That would explain the reviewer who wonders why this one is so overlooked. The song titles on this CD seem to run sequentially with half of "Gone With The Wind" & half of "Stormy Weather," two CD's perhaps sold as later reissues. If so, then this CD misses a few gems present on the other two, "Stormy Weather" itself & "Yesterdays" being two that I enjoy, but there are others. I do agree that it was a great two nights for live jazz!"

"My favorite Ben Webster album. I have no idea how this amazing cd has been overlooked by so many. The recording is probably the best sounding Jazz CD of all time and it was recorded in 1965!!! I don't think I have ever any other recording that places the listener so well in the club. "Play Misty for Me" is the highlight of the CD for me. If you can find a copy of this amazing CD grab it.

Kenny Drew - Piano

Alex Riel - Drums"
