Benjamin Francis Webster (1909-1973) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. Webster, born in Kansas City, Missouri, is considered one of the three most important “swing tenors” along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. Known affectionately as The Brute, or Frog, he had a tough, raspy, and brutal tone on stomps (with growls), yet on ballads he played with warmth and sentiment. Stylistically he was indebted to alto starJohnny Hodges, who, he said, taught him to play his instrument. (from Wikipedia)
