Recorded around a month after the veteran tenor Ben Webster moved to Europe, this high-quality set with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Neils Pederson, and drummer Alex Riel features Webster stretching out on the traditional “Londonderry Air,” with two originals and seven familiar but fresh standards. Webster was in peak form in the mid-60s, as witnessed on this and his other Black Lion recordings covering the period. This deluxe 3LP edition is limited to 500 numbered units, and includes the standard 33rpm LP edition of the album, along with a 2LP 45rpm edition in a die-cut gatefold jacket.
