Another solid performance featuring Ben Webster playing with his friend Harry "Sweets" Edison. Recorded in 1962, this is a must hear for music lovers and audiophiles alike. It's doubtful that there have been two jazz musicians more suited to record together than Ben Webster and Sweets Edison. Alumni of the Ellington and Basie bands respectively, these two mainstream swing players have marvelous chemistry on this session. The charts are perfect vehicles for Webster's warm tone and silky phrasing as well as Edison's blues-ridden melodic style that matured in the mid- and late 1950's. Most of the tunes swing hard anchored by a solid Basie-esque rhythm section. You'll wear this one out.
