Ben WebsterA great late recording from Ben Webster -- working here in Paris with some wonderful help from the trio of pianist George Arvanitas! George's rhythm duo is wonderful -- the bold bass of Jacky Samson and hip drums of Charles Saudrais -- both players who bring a really fresh feel to the record, and help Webster find a hip setting in these later years of his life -- a sprightly groove that's great for his aging, raspy tone on tenor sax. Arvanitas' piano is nicely restrained, leaving Ben to be the key solo star of the album -- and titles include "Hal Blues", "Johnny Come Lately", "I Want A Little Girl", "Ash's Cap", "Autumn Leaves", and "Prelude To A Kiss". CD features 3 bonus alternate takes too. - Dusty Groove
