|Pages/Publication Date:||81 / 2015|
A preferred collaborator for many jazz musicians and a prolific recording artist in his own right, Ben Webster joins forces with Gerry Mulligan for a saxes-only version of "Chelsea Bridge" and adds Jimmy Witherspoon to the mix for a concert including "C.C. Rider" and "Corina, Corina." Ben and Sweets features Harry Edison on "Embraceable You" and "How Long Has This Been Going On," while a disc recorded with the Oscar Peterson Trio features "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning." The eight full albums contained on this set also include The Warm Moods, the live At the Renaissance, and Roots, again featuring Witherspoon's magnificently bluesy vocals.
