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.

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

This is as good as it gets. You have a nice system? This will show it off to the exponential degree. The music is timeless. I never get tired of it. I’m easily amused, but I can play this three or four times a week and it’s always fresh. So much here, yes just get it.
