5.0 out of 5 stars Big Ben in Europe, 11 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Gone with the Wind (Audio CD)
Is this the best Ben Webster album out there? Probably not, but he is still blowing darn near his magnificent prime, and the international rhythm section IS cookin', to say the least, as others have rightly stated long before me. Kenny Drew (piano), Niels-Henning Oersted Pedersen (b) and Alex Riel (dm) also have some fine solo space, in addition to accompanying big Ben.
I must admit, Ben is one of my favorites, with his big, breathy sound and subtle elegance displayed by gentle flowing into higher register during his solos...
This combination of well known ballads and romps (plus Ben's own "Set Call") is highly desirable in every mainstream jazz fan, tenor sax fan, ben webster fan (etc.).

On the other hand, if you don't want another interpretation of Misty or Yesterdays, this might not be the album for you (I'd lie if I said I heard many versions of "That's All" though).
