Ben Webster: At The Renaissance (CD: Contemporary- US Import)
For Ben Webster, his Los Angeles years of the late 1950s and early Sixties held massive frustration that was relieved by only a few high points. Jobs were scarce, and the lack of recognition and appreciation must have been heartbreaking for this tenor saxophone giant who felt things deeply. A bright spot for Webster was that when he worked, it was often with the splendid band in this album. In Jimmy Rowles, Jim Hall, Red Mitchell, and Frank Butler, he had sympathetic and inspirational colleagues. This live recording captures their remarkable empathy. It includes nearly 30 minutes of previously unissued music. (Fantasy, Inc.)
