Peterson, Oscar & Ben Webster
Art of Groove, 2014, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: You can’t go wrong with this recording of two jazz legends. Ben Webster plays a swinging throaty sax surrounded by Oscar’s punctuated fills. Niels-Henning ¯rsted Pederson walks his bass around them while Tony Inzalaco keeps the beat. It was 1972 in Hannover at the 84th NDR Workshop and these fine musicians were performing at peak to the delight of a live audience. There are nine classics all performed with high intensity and lots or feeling! And to top it off there’s also a fine DVD of the performance!
