Ben Webster is one of the great figures of American jazz. He played the alto-saxophone with practically all the big bands of the thirties, including Duke Ellington’s. He spent a few years travelling around Europe before coming to a temporary halt in Amsterdam. Johan van der Keuken’s camera follows him on his wanderings through the city.
