"I just picked up your new AP pressing of Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson and it sounds amazing. QRP is doing it right!" - Matthew Block, Acoustic Sounds customer

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!" Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011

"...this LP is from the stereo tapes. While I've always preferred the original in its mono version, that preference no longer stands. The stereo image is stunning, with good center fill, decent depth and no sense that instruments are stuck in the speaker locations - in other words all of the attributes of the best mono recordings with the advantages of stereo spread. You'll use this record to show your doubting friends just how much better (vinyl) can sound than any digital format." Recording = 10/10; Music = 10/10 — Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 87

 

Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson brings together two of the greatest stylists American music has produced. Here, in a program of timeless songs, pianist Oscar Peterson is the perfect foil - his effortless swing an excellent set-up for the unhurried scoops, slurs, and bent notes of tenor saxophone balladeer Ben Webster - just the way he liked it.

Originally released in 1959.

Ben Webster, tenor saxophone
Oscar Peterson, piano
Ray Brown, bass
Ed Thigpen, drums

I have a 33 rpm copy and thought it was very good already. But then the new Quality Record 45 rpm is even better. It is super quiet. Better bass, and smoother highs.


Even better.

The music is timeless on this album. If you're a Oscar Peterson or Ben Webster fan you know that for a fact. I didn't think that the 45 rpm jazz reissues that Analogue Productions release could get any better but now that they're pressing them at QRP in Kansas they're even better. I'm really looking forward to more records pressed at Quality Record Pressings. Thanks Chad and the rest of the crew at Acoustic Sounds.
