This unusual recording features the great tenorman Ben Webster at a rehearsal with The Denmark Radio Big Band and singers Matty Peters and Freddy Albeck. Webster often calls out instructions to the group and at various times sound humorous, instructive and impatient. There is not a great amount of music on this set with its many breakdowns and interruptions but Webster fans will find these candid and certainly spontaneous moments to be of interest.
