Issued in time for Valentine's Day 2005, Ben Webster for Lovers collects 11 of the tenor giant's best ballads from his Verve period. Readings of "My Funny Valentine," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Where Are You," "Love Is Here to Stay," and "Time On My Hands" are the standouts, but nothing here is superfluous. The only track that should have been included that wasn't is Webster's read of "Chelsea Bridge" from Music for Loving, the single most moving ballad he ever recorded. This set works well for its intended purpose, but it functions just as well as a stellar set of ballads by one of the jazz genre's finest practitioners of the form.
Ben Webster for Lovers is smooth and sweet music for the soul
The sound touches my heart and touches my soul. When I heard these ballads over a candlelight dinner....Ben Webster set the mood. THe melody moves you and this is sure to be a classic for "lovers" for years to come.
