Ha! This is one of my favorites. And I''m ashamed to say I've never bothered to learn it. I'll add it to the list. Thanks Tim

Always liked this tune as well, don't know the history but I have recordings of Sinatra, Dexter, and Sonny doing this one. But, never heard this one - beautiful!

He was sure a master of the slow tempo, so patient. And, that incredible tone and expressiveness. Thank you for sharing this!!!

Another Gem for sure! Tim, I think there a lot of us older guys here and probably some dedicated younger ones also who do listen, play and appreciate the great standards more than you may think. Last night I interupted my practice session
to put on some Louis Armstrong and play along with him. My goal is to put on one cd of my 1400 cd jazz collection and play along for a couple of tunes at the end of my practice...is there any benefit in that?

Of course there is. It will develop your ear, among many other things. Plus, it's fun.

Wow - that is a really incredible performance. Amazing sound, style, and soul. Big Ben had it all.

I stuck an old Tom Scott CD in the car player last week, had a version of "Everything Must Change" on it.

The last line of that song is "Music makes me cry".

This one made me cry. Thanks Tim, you always choose the nuggets.

Thanks Tim,

For once again opening my ears. I've listened to Ben Webster an have enjoyed his sound. But now as I listen I appreciate that sound and what he's doing with it a lot more. Thanks for the post.

That Webster/Hawkins album was one of the first jazz albums I ever bought. I love his slow version of "Time After Time"
