Synopsis

Album Description
This album from Cees Slinger, a top choice for American artists touring Europe since the ?60s, features a 1996 recording with Ben Webster and one from 2000 with his regular quartet. Both prove the extraordinary technique and sensitivity of this pianist. This material has never been available before ? a real collectors item! Cees Slinger is an outstanding piano player who has recorded and performed with Bud Freeman, Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Philly Joe Jones and Clifford Jordan, to name a few. "This was the first time we played these tunes with Ben, or even laid eyes on the music. Soon after this session we found out they were part of his more-or-less standard repertoire at that time. I played them many, many times with him during the years he lived in Amsterdam, and I can truthfully say that Ben Webster contributed enormously to my musical education. I loved him dearly." ? Cees Slinger
