Product Notes

This recording was made 10 months before Ben Webster's death in 1972. Webster, who had left the United States in 1965 to settle in Europe - first in Copenhagen and then in Amsterdam - was visiting fellow musician and friend Tete Montoliu in Barcelona. Webster and pianist Montoliu went back a ways, having played together regularly in Webster's Copenhagen days. In fact, Montoliu cited Webster and Don Byas as his two chief musical influences. Webster and Montoliu understood each other deeply, and their comfort with on another is palpable in this recording. Their accompaniment of one another is seamless. On board with these two is Montoliu's regular working trio-mates, Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums. 200 gram vinyl. Tracks: 1. Ben's Blues 2. The Man I Love 3. My Nephew Bent 4. How Long This Has Been Going on 5. Sweet Georgia Brown 6. Don't Blame Me 7. Did You Call 8. Barcelona Shout.
