Ben WebsterLive At Pio's ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Germany), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
A great small club date from Ben Webster – different than some of his European concerts of his final years, in that this one was done at a lounge in Rhode Island, and maybe has a bit more bite and focus overall!

Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $34.99
A great little album from Ben Webster – perhaps not his most sophisticated, jazz-wise, but done up in a cool cover that has him standing in front of the steel globe at the 1964 World's Fair in New York.

Hey, these guys are mad!

Webster plays with Oscar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
