About this product
- DescriptionOne of the 'big three' of swing ters - along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young - Ben Webster was one of the best kwn and most popular saxophonists from the 1930s through the 1970s. Early in his career, Webster worked with many of the greatest orchestras of the time, including those led by Willie Bryant, Cab Calloway, Benny Carter, Fletcher Henderson, Andy Kirk, Bennie Moten, and Teddy Wilson. In 1940 Ben Webster became Duke Ellington's first major ter soloist, and during the next three years he played on many famous recordings, including Cotton Tail. Someone to Watch Over Me tells, for the first time, the complete story of Ben Webster's brilliant and troubled career. For this comprehensive study of Webster, author Buchmann-Moller interviewed more than fifty people in the U.S. and Europe, and he includes numerous translated excerpts from European periodicals and newspapers, ne previously available in English. In addition, the author studies every kwn Webster recording and film, including many private recordings from Webster's home collection t available to the public. Exhaustively researched, this is a much-needed and long-overdue study of the life and music of one of jazz's most important artists.
