Weeping With Webster

Do you cry when you listen to music? I do. It seems Ben Webster did too. He appears to start weeping during Teddy Wilson's solo in this remarkable video. I get it. The Kansas City native would have turned 100 this year. He died in 1973, three years after delivering this riveting performance in Europe.

Gentle Ben was an original. They're playing the tune Old Folks.
