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.

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.

Reviewer: Stevie D
This is an excellent, natural-sounding transfer that emphasizes the music, realizing the potential of the SACD format.

Great playing by all, with a wonderfully sensitive musical interaction and vibe that clearly comes through in the listening.
