Vinyl LP pressing. After a time with Duke Ellington, expressive tenor saxophonist Ben Webster went solo, recording an early LP for Norman Granz’s Norgran label leading him to his most successful phase with Verve, following a merger. Soulville is easily the best of the bunch, with Webster’s breathy tones given a fitting accompaniment by Oscar Peterson and his group, then including bassist Ray Brown, guitarist Herb Ellis, and understated drummer Stan Levy; versions of “Lover Come Back To Me” and “Makin’ Whoopee” sound excellent, but bluesy originals such as “Last Date” and the title track are truly outstanding. A quality set from start to finish.
