A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! Whatever the backstory, though, the set's a nice one – swinging hard in that completely tight 60s mode, with a great lineup that includes Frank Foster, Freddie Green, Thad Jones, and Bennie Powell. Tracks include "Good Time Blues", "Segue In C", "Little Pony", "Discommotion", and "Whirly Bird", which has a vocal by Jon Hendricks! (Multi-color bar pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, a spot of tape with a rip on the spine, some pen, and a promo stamp on the back. Label has a sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
