When it came to ballads, Ben Webster was one of the most eloquent. His warm, airy (yet thick) tone contrasted with the aggressive, biting tone he used on faster material. On THE WARM MOODS, we hear the strength of Webster's musical insight, and in particular, the superb sense of melodicism that he possessed.
Teamed up with a string quartet (arranged by Johnny Richards) and a rhythm section (Donn Trenner on piano, Don Bagley on bass, and Frank Capp on drums), the tenor veteran succeeds in rendering truly gorgeous versions of often overlooked standards such as "The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi," "I'm Beginning to See the Light," and "It's Easy to Remember." A soft, lush, hopelessly romantic album, THE WARM MOODS seduces the ear with every note. The highlight of the session is probably "But Beautiful," not only because of the strength of the song itself, but because of the interplay between the solo violin and Webster's succulent tenor saxophone.
