Jazz 625: Ben Webster


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Introduced by Steve Race Along with Lester Young and Coleman Hawkins ,
Ben Webster was one of the great stylists on tenor saxophone - sometimes aggressive, often tender. Born in Kansas City, he was a featured soloist with Bennie Moten 's band, and, in the early 1940s, adorned the Duke Ellington Orchestra in its heyday.
This programme was originally shown in the Jazz 625 series in 1965 and features the great tenor saxophonist who died in 1973. Accompanying him are Ronnie Scott (tenor sax) Stan Tracey (piano) Rick Laird (bass) and Jackie Dougan (drums) Produced and directed by TERRY HENEBERY

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
