All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP of Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes, Pressed at QRP, and Housed in Stoughton Gatefold Jacket

Many saxophonists have come close, but none have quite equaled the fullness of tone, enveloping spirit, or sense of uncompromised soul that jazz giants Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster produced on their instruments. This 1957 Verve date with Norman Granz behind the boards finds the two tenors matching musical wits with iconic accompaniment from Herb Ellis (guitar), Ray Brown (bass), Oscar Peterson (piano) and Alvin Stoller (drums). From Hawkins' screaming solo on opener "Blues for Yolanda," to the saxophone greats' beautiful give and take on the ballads "It Never Entered My Mind" and "Prisoner of Love" to the melodic toe tappers "You'd be So Nice to Come Home To" and "Tangerine," this classic 7-song set is warm, lyrical and altogether essential!

Seeking to offer definitive audiophile grade versions of some of the most historic and best jazz records ever recorded, Verve Label Group and Universal Music Enterprises' audiophile vinyl reissue series utilizes the skills of top mastering engineers and the unsurpassed production craft of Quality Record Pressings. All titles are mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed on 180-gram vinyl and packaged by Stoughton Printing Co. in high-quality gatefold sleeves with tip-on jackets.
