Σαν σήμερα, 27 Μαρτίου 1909 γεννήθηκε ο Ben Webster. Μαζί με τους Coleman Hawkins και Lester Young θεωρείται ο σημαντικότερος τενόρος σαξοφωνίστας της προ μπίμποπ εποχής. Επηρεασμένος ο ίδιος από τον Johnny Hodges, τον [άλτο] σαξoφωνίστα του Duke Ellington, θα αποτελέσει πηγή έμπνευσης για πλήθος μεταγενέστερούς του.
Ακούμε το ομώνυμο κομμάτι από το άλμπουμ του Ben Webster Quintet, Soulville [1958]. Oscar Peterson – piano, Herb Ellis – guitar, Ray Brown – bass, Stan Levey – drums
Και στη συνέχεια, Night and Day από το μνημειώδες άλμπουμ The Art Tatum – Ben Webster Quartet [1958]. Red Callender – bass, Bill Douglass – drums

On this date, March 27, 1909, Ben Webster was born. Along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young he is considered the most important tenor saxophonist of the pre-bebop era. Influenced by Johnny Hodges, Duke Ellington’s [alto] saxophonist, he will be an inspiration for countless subsequent players. We hear the eponymous track from Ben Webster Quintet’s album, Soulville [1958]. Oscar Peterson – piano, Herb Ellis – guitar, Ray Brown – bass, Stan Levey – drums
After that, Night and Day from the monumental The Art Tatum – Ben Webster Quartet [1958]. Red Callender – bass, Bill Douglass – drums

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
