My Man: Live at Montmartre 1973 is a live album by American saxophonist Ben Webster recorded at the Jazzhus Montmartre in 1973 and released on the SteepleChase label. Webster's warm ballad renditions and hard-driving romps are as always quite enjoyable to hear.

Fifteen years after Charlie Parker’s Swedish tour, tenor saxophone titan Ben Webster took up permanent residence in Denmark. In his first month in Copenhagen, he recorded the first nine previously unreleased tracks on Ben Webster at Montmartre 1965-1966 (Storyville) at that city’s famous jazz club. The last three were recorded a year and a half later. That’s especially important because the album’s greatest appeal is its crystal-clear rendering of the subtleties and nuances of Webster’s extraordinarily beautiful signature tone and phrasing on ballads like My Romance and Someone to Watch Over Me. But Webster also growls and jumps on such fare as Pennies From Heaven and two versions of Ellington’s Cottontail, where he starts his choruses with the opening phrases of his famous solo on Duke’s 1940 recording. Both Drew and Pedersen are especially impressive as accompanists and soloists.

Biography by Scott Yanow. Venerable tenor sax man, featured member of many legendary orchestras before solo career. Intuition Music, 1201 Music.

Benjamin Francis Webster (March 27, 1909 – September 20, 1973) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. He 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. He was indebted to alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges, who, he said, taught him to play his instrument.
