Ben Webster (1909-1973) was, without a doubt, one of the most important and influential tenor saxophonists in jazz. This outstanding DVD gives us the rare opportunity to not only listen to Webster, but to see him in performance, exquisitely backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio featuring the late Danish bassist
Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen. This DVD boasts excellent sound and image quality (in color) given the time of the performance, allowing us to listen and see the magic that these two musical giants produced together. The program, as was normally the case with Webster's concerts, consists of jazz standards, an occasional blues and numerous Ellington tunes.
