On the 16th of October 1957, Coleman Hawkins (aged 52) and Ben Webster (48) were shut away in Hollywood’s legendary Capitol studios putting together, under the guidance of Verve producer Norman Granz, an album that would go on to be an absolute classic. With Lester Young, these two tenor saxophone giants were then considered unmatchable in their skill with the instrument as confirmed in this session in which four other musicians lend their expertise: pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Alvin Stoller. The respect is tangible between these two “big sound” saxophonists as they deliver a warm and often lyrical performance like never before. From Hawk’s opening Blues For Yolande a classy and classical tone is present. Nothing stands in the way of the musicians’ faultless tango as their instruments expertly yowl and stretch the tenor to its limits. The ballads are an achievement as heard on It Never Entered My Mind and Prisoner of Love. Published two years later in November 1959, Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster would doubtless make up one of the pillars of any ideal jazz nightclub worthy of the name. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Saxophone: The tenor’s big names

How did the saxophone, this instrument invented by a Belgian for military orchestras, become reserved to one genre? How did jazzmen get their hands on Adolphe Sax’s invention? This is the first part of a series devoted to the instrument’s giants, starting with the tenor—pay honor where honor is due— and its many adepts, from Coleman Hawkins to Wayne Shorter.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: he’s called Peter Thomas! His film music is often eccentric and it has left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s, to the point where he’s often been cited and sampled by numerous young pop groups since the 90s. The cult composer passed away on 17 May 2020. We had met him three years earlier, at the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.
