Ben Webster meets Oscar Peterson (Hannover, 1972)

Oscar at his best.. he always did his best music in Europe.. he didn’t care much for the “scene” here in the US!! And Ben Webster is the player Lester Young always WANTED TO BE BUT COULDN’T GET OFF THE HEROIN!!

By the way.. that’s how they killed Billy Holiday by paying her for her recordings in ENDLESS heroin which she shared with the whole Harlem Jazz Scene because it was a LOT and it was FREE TO HER but she was always “fuckin” for cash.. SAD BUT FUCKIN’ TRUE!!
