Here is one of the classic pairings in jazz. There are no arrangements to speak of--an 8 bar intro is fancy stuff here--the better to let Ben Webster, he of the breathy, cavernous sound, blow a program of timeless songs. Pianist Oscar Peterson is the perfect foil. His effortless swing setting up the tenor saxophonist just the way he liked it. A master class in saxophone ballads.
