Description: Ben Webster was, without a doubt, one of the most important and influential tenor saxophonists in jazz. This outstanding film 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. Webster and Peterson played together many times, and the tenor saxophonist often said that Oscar was his favorite accompanist. They made their first recorded collaboration in 1952 and this performance marks the duo's final collaboration, as Ben would die less than a year later. This film boasts excellent sound and image quality (in color) , allowing us to listen and see the magic that these two musical giants produced together.
Stars: Oscar Peterson, Ben Webster, Niels-Henning Oersted Pedersen
