Breakfast Dance & Barbecue? Our stomachs are growling already! The album's a great little live set from Basie – recorded at the Americana Hotel in Miami at 2 in the morning – featuring an all-star late 50s Basie group with Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Joe Newman
, Thad Jones, and Harry Edison – plus Joe
Williams vocalizing on a few of the tunes on the set. The tracks are a bit longer than usual – which is quite nice – and titles include "Let's Have A Taste", "Moten Swing", "Who Me", and "Counter Block".
(Multi-color bar pressing with deep groove. Side 2 has a mark that clicks on track three. Cover has some wear, minor seam splitting, some clear tape, two pieces of colored tape, marker on the front, staining along the bottom, and pen on the back. )
