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…

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….

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.

Ben Webster was not exactly under-recorded during his forty-year playing career but he is among that exclusive hierarchy of jazz artists to whose consistent excellence there can never be an over-abundance of recorded testimony. This album has the merit of offering a nicely balanced and thoughtfully chosen selection of tracks. Four of the tunes are associated with Duke Ellington in whose saxophone section Ben was featured for more than ten years.

Our Blues is a choice example of Ben’s evocative after-hours style of blues playing. An additional bonus is the superior quality of the musicians behind Webster on all these tracks, recorded in Copenhagen between 1968 and 1970.

Although an earlier CD added five previously unissued tracks to the original LP Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster, this Verve Master Edition two-CD set adds just about everything else recorded during the two sessions that produced the original record, and also features 20-bit sound. Even though Gerry Mulligan was outspoken against issuing material omitted from his original recordings, it is a treat to hear how the songs evolved in the studio. Webster and Mulligan seem mutually inspired throughout the sessions, and strong performances by pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, and drummer Mel Lewis are of considerable help.
