Это совершенно особый диск. Считается, что эта запись - своеобразный реквием по "Моцарту тенор-саксофона" Лестеру Янгу (Lester Willis Young 27.08.1909 - 15.03.1959), умершему незадолго до того. По общему признанию, Лестер Янг ( наряду с Беном Вебстером и Колманом Хоккинсом ) входил в тройку лучших тенор-саксофонистов своего времени. Отсюда - такой представительный состав исполнителей на этой своеобразной поминальной службе. Грустная такая получилась запись. Тем не менее, очень рекомендую…

Ben Webster - At The Renaissance (1960)
Jazz | Live | MP3-320 kbps | 160 Mb

Лучший, на мой взгляд, диск замечательного тенор-саксофониста Бена Вебстера. Диск записан в 1960 году в клубе " Renaissance" , что располагался некогда на известном, благодаря одноименному фильму, Бульваре Заходящего Солнца ( Sunset Strip ) в Голливуде. Записан он был, что называется "на коленках" ( на самом деле, за занавесочной, которую натянули на сцене, прямо за музыкантами ), иными словами, не в "очень предназначенных условиях" для записи такой ВЕЛИКОЙ МУЗЫКИ. Потом, согласно легенде, через много лет, Музыка была восстановлена с четырех случайно оставшихся магнитофонных записей. Поэтому, качество записи, иногда, оставляет желать лучшего, но ДА ИМЕЮЩИЙ ДУШУ, ДА УСЛЫШИТ….
Illinois Jacquet & Ben Webster - The Kid and the Brute (1954) [Remastered 1998]

EAC rip | FLAC + CUE + LOG | Full Scans | 230 Mb (Incl. Recovery)
Genre ~ Bop, Jump Blues, Saxophone Jazz | Label ~ PolyGram Records/Verve Music Group

This single CD reissues all of the music from a former LP and a ten-inch LP. Of greatest interest are two fairly long selections (the blues "I Wrote This for the Kid" and a stomping "The Kid and the Brute") that match Illinois Jacquet with fellow tenor great Ben Webster. Since they have equally passionate and distinctive sounds, their "battle" is a draw. ~ AllMusic

This session comes from close to the end of the line (1959) in the erstwhile swinging company of Barney Kessel on guitar, Ben Webster on tenor, and naysayers will be quick to point out that Lady Day wasn't in peak form here…

A somewhat surprising pairing at the time, the former firebrand of the tenor sax and the wonderful South African pianist found a pleasant and relaxed meeting point.

Soulville is one of the highlights of Ben Webster's golden era. From 1953 to 1959 Webster recorded 10 landmark albums showcasing his swing tenor saxophone, and this album from 1957 is considered a classic. Soulville has it all: there's cool groovy jazz, a bit of soul, a bit of blues, a sense of longing and a whole lot of romance on this ballad-heavy collection. The quintet in the credits consists of Webster, drummer Stan Levey and the Oscar Peterson Trio.

Swing tenor saxophone player Ben Webster earned the nickname “The Brute and the Beautiful” in jazz circles where his musical versatility was well-known. Webster's signature tough, raspy and gruff tone softened on ballads, which he played with warmth and sentiment. On this Storyville release he caresses seven timeless melodies in a variety of settings including trios with either Teddy Wilson, Ole Kock Hansen or Kenny Drew on piano, backing by The Danish Radio Big Band (on "Cry Me a River") or a version of "Greensleeves" with a string orchestra. Although largely forgotten in the United States (he had moved to Europe in 1965), Ben Webster was still in fine form this late in his career.
