Personnel on the recording

I case you want to know, the musicians on the album are Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster (tenor saxophone); Oscar Peterson (piano); Herb Ellis (guitar); Ray Brown (bass); Alvin Stoller (drums).


The complementary sonorous tones of Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster are something to experience! These artists play with such sensitivity and depth that they must be heard to be believed.

Considering the status of Oscar Peterson and Herb Ellis -high level players in their own right- this speaks to the deliberate showcasing of these two tenor icons.

"You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" and "Shine On Harvest Moon" are my favorites.

one of the greatest!

But after Budd Johnson showed him some basics on the saxophone, Webster...
