Ben Webster’s First Concert In Denmark could be called ‘a prelude to a love affair’. Why? Because it was the great tenor saxophonist’s first encounter with the country he decided to spend the rest of his life. Recorded in 1965, at the Danish Radio Concert Hall, this was a live concert for radio. His backing would be Kenny Drew, Niels Henning Ørsted-Pedersen and Alex Riel. Producer, Børge Roger Henrichsen, an esteemed bandleader and radio editor, wanted to ‘time’ the concert, so captured is Webster playing one chorus of In A Mellow Tone in two tempos for Henrichsen to get his timing in sync. Since it is live, we only get the first chorus of Cottontail at the end, before the broadcast switched to the news.
