    Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound

    Soulville is quintessential Ben Webster: intimate, tender, endlessly expressive. Webster was internationally recognized as one of jazz's elder statesman when he recorded this album in 1957, but the youthful fire that had marked his playing with the Duke Ellington Orchestra two decades earlier was undiminished. Leading a stellar combo through a program consisting mostly of vintage pop tunes, the great tenor saxophonist is at his peak. And this reissue includes three rare recordings of Webster on piano, the first instrument he played as a young professional musician.

    Recorded in 1957.

    Ben Webster, tenor saxophone
    Ray Brown, bass
    Herb Ellis, guitar
    Stan Levey, drums
    Oscar Peterson, piano
