LP Artwork: Big Joe Turner & Count Basie/The Bosses
This week's show includes the blues number, Night Time Is the Right Time. And the track is taken from one of the Pablo albums that Big Joe Turner recorded in the 1970s with Count Basie. Pure precision. Sensational sense of swing. Tight and always exciting.
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).
