1953: An Exceptional Encounter

1953: An Exceptional Encounter is a live jazz recording featuring Ben Webster and the Modern Jazz Quartet, released on The Jazz Factory Label in 2001.

Recorded over two nights, on February 21 & 23 at an unnamed club in New York, this rare meeting of Ben Webster and the Modern Jazz Quartet evidently originated from a radio aircheck.[1]
