Songs in album Ben Webster - Ballads (2012). My Funny Valentine-шикарная вещь,в ней сыграли легендарный контрабасист Рэй Браун и такой же легендарный пианист Тедди Уилсон.

Webster uses the latter voice throughout this two-LP set. On all but four of 20 selections, Ben is backed by a string section arranged by Ralph Burns (except for "Chelsea Bridge" which was arranged by Billy Strayhorn) and, although clarinetists Tony Scott and Jimmy Hamilton and pianists Teddy Wilson and Hank Jones are heard from, the focus is otherwise entirely on the great tenor. The final four numbers, which matches Webster with Wilson in a stringless quartet, also stick to ballads. Music that is both beautiful and creative.

Ben's gentle side is an endless joy to hear. As the tunes are ballads, they are slow enough for you to hear what the tenorist does with each number, which is almost always inventive and original. For example, the album repeats Ben playing All Too Soon, which he performed so memorably with the Ellington band in 1940. His reading here shows that he was a master of phrasing and how he added graceful embellishments even while stating a simple melody. And that warm, breathy tenor tone is endlessly engaging
