Although Ben Webster's artistic output is not solely synonymous with tender ballads, he could still have had an impressive career had he only produced the sweet, quiet melodies that he excelled in. The tracks from this release are taken from various recordings he did with The Danish Radio Group during the late '60s and early '70s.

They represent some of the best ballads from his live repertoire. The band consists of some of the best Danish musicians at the time, including Niels-Henning Ørsted Petersen, Jesper Thilo and Palle Mikkelbord among others. The sound offers a warmth that suits the ballads perfectly, and the musicians accompanying Webster display the perfect ability to play their instruments subtlety.

The album contains seven tracks in total, including well-known tracks such as "Stardust," "Cry Me A River" and "Willow Weep for Me."



1. Stardust
2. Cry Me A River
3. For Heavens Sake
4. Greensleeves
5. My Romance
6. Willow Weep For Me
7. Old Folks
