"Neither man made serious concessions to the other. The most effective analogy might be watching a stately ship move slowly over a boisterous sea. Webster’s imperious balladry was his main stockin-trade, and we forget that he had a considerable facility at faster tempos, and even managed to preserve that distinctive just-woke-up tone. Tatum eats up the tunes, leaving little for Red Callender and Bill Douglass to do, though the bass man in particular makes the best possible use of his moments of freedom." - Penguin Guide to Jazz

It would be hard to find two musicians born in the same year with so different a sound from each other as Art Tatum and Ben Webster. The former, considered one of the few authentic geniuses of jazz piano, is best known for being a virtuoso soloist of outstanding precision. The latter is among the most celebrated sax players in jazz history, especially for having been a member of Duke Ellington’s great orchestra. It wasn’t in an attempt to erase these differencesthat producer Norman Granz decided to record them together on this, their only quartet album. - Jazz Magazine
