Ben Webster CDs with Maynard Ferguson


BEN WEBSTER, THE BIG TENOR (JAPANESE PRESSING) -- Nippon Phonogram 824 836-2(1)

This is a rare 1985 double CD, with MF playing on the tunes Randle's Island (all 3 takes), Old Folks (all 3 takes), King's Riff (captured in just 1 take), and You're My Thrill (all 3 takes). You'll probably recall that MF recorded these tunes on 12/27/51 as "Tiger Brown." This Japanese pressing with these alternate takes included is ultra rare and very long out of print.
