A classic club date this week from the legendary Ben Webster and his Quartet, consisting of Kenny Drew, Piano – Nis-Henning Orsted Pedersen, bass and Alex Riel, drums. Recorded at Jazzhus Monmarte in Copenhagen on January 30 and 31st, 1965.
A great set, and part of a 2-CD release on the Jazz Colours label from Germany. The sound is pretty stunning and Webster is in fine form.
Something simply straight-ahead and very cool this Sunday – taking the pace down a few db for the weekend.
And a breath of cool from the frantic pace of the Festivals going on.
