Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original master tapes to vinyl and PCM. The DSD was sourced from the PCM. George listened to all of the different A/D converters he had before he chose which to use, and he felt the George Massenburg GML 20 bit A/D produced the best and most synergistic sound for the project.
"I really think that the people who are willing to lay down their money for these reissues are going to get something really outstanding." — George Marino, Sterling Sound engineer, commenting on Analogue Productions' Verve 25-title reissue series.
A blowing session that matches the matchless jazz tenor sax master with fellow tenorist Harold Ashby in a program of loose originals.
Recorded in 1958 and released the following year on Verve, The Soul of Ben Webster is a superb example of swinging mainstream jazz and bop. Webster is in fine form throughout, as are his fellow musicians including trumpeter Art Farmer, bassist Milt Hinton, pianist Jimmy Jones, and others. --Matt Collar
