This deluxe 8-CD box set has more than 10 hours of Ben Webster’s music including previously unreleased tracks.
The sessions were recorded mainly during 1964 - 1973 in Europe, mostly in Scandinavia, and include live recordings from festivals, clubs and radio and television broadcasts. They feature Webster at Copenhagen’s famous Montmartre club and other Danish locations as well as sessions from his renowned month-long residency at London’s Ronnie Scott’s (his first job in Europe). Completing the set are recordings from Finland, Sweden, Belgium, Germany and several tracks recorded before he left New York.
Webster is heard in various settings- from trios to big bands (mainly quartets) - in the company of contemporaries including Teddy Wilson, Clark Terry, Buck Clayton and Dexter Gordon. The booklet is illustrated with some great photos of Webster and gives a very personal insight from his closest friends and associates into his life and loves, his music and the colourful anecdotes that arose everywhere this remarkable musician went.
