Once again, the Masked Announcer comes through... just out on the Hyena
label is a previuosly unreleased concert from 1961 with Joe Williams and Ben
Webster. That night Joe asked Ben to perform "My Funny Valentine" which
Webster promptly refused. Bewildered Williams asked why to which The Frog
answered, "I don't know the lyrics"  To me that speaks volumes about Webster
and other fine saxists playing.
