Loren Schoenberg on Ben Webster




Loren Schoenberg (of the the National Jazz Museum in Harlem) has published a four part lecture on Ben Webster on YouTube. 


The production is not of the highest quality (but the content easily makes up for it), and some of the tracks are better heard on youtube directly or from your collection, if you can find them. There are quite a few rarities.



Part 1:



Part 2:



Part 3:



Part 4: 






An excellent "solography" of Ben Webster is available here, to discover some of his best tracks: http://www.jazzarcheology.com/?s=ben+webster
