The Ben Webster Foundation
The Ben Webster Foundation is a 100 pct. non profitable organisation and every dime from Websters royalties goes into new music or awards to the best younger – or mature musiscian - around.
Foundation established under the sign of Her Majesty The Queen of Denmark in 1975. Ben Webster lived in Denmark for the last 8 years of his life.
