LP Artwork: The Bosses
Pure precision. Sensational sense of swing. Tight and always exciting. And ably demonstrated on this great album by Basie and Big Joe Turner. It was recorded in 1973 and released on Norman Granz's label, Pablo Records.
How about this for band accompaniment: Ray Brown (b), Irving Ashby (g), Eddie Lockjaw Davis (ts), Zoot Sims (ts), JJ Johnson (tb), Harry Sweets Edison (tpt), Louis Bellson (d).
William James "Count" Basie
