Coleman Hawkins & Ben Webster Blue Saxophones DMM 180g Import LP
Two Legendary Swing Tenors On 180g Vinyl LP!
Ben Webster was considered one of the "big three" of swing tenors along with
Coleman Hawkins (his main influence) and Lester Young. Blue Saxophones is a
studio album recorded in 1957 by Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster. Accompanied by
a rhythm section with Herb Ellis guitar, Alvin Stoller drums and Ray Brown on
double bass led by Oscar Peterson. They just blend together beautifully, and
with the great Oscar Peterson on piano, the approach is always very tasteful.
This encounter shows the two veterans at the peaks of their powers. Most of the
album is a relaxed meeting of old friends, though. Coleman and Webster duet
beautifully on the heads of "La Rosita" and "It Never Entered My Mind".
