April In Paris

LP (Item 44203) Verve, 1955 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

One of Basie's biggest albums – but still a work of pure genius! "April In Paris" is one of the darkest jazz standards ever written, and it never sounded better than in this original version, which features that great ending in which Basie and the band stop, then start, then stop – leaving you completely unresolved at the finish. The group's a strong one – with Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Marshall Royal, Henry Coker, Joe Newman, and Thad Jones – and tracks include "Shiny Stockings", "Midgets", "Mambo Inn", "Sweety Cakes", and "Corner Pocket".

Verve, 1968. Very Good-
One of the last albums that Cal ever cut for Verve – and one of the best! The great Joao Donato's sitting in on piano, and the set has a beautiful mix of Brazilian and Latin grooves, with added Verve groovy touches thrown in for good measure!

Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
You know, in these days of vintage pop songs used ad nauseum in every commercial, it's easy to forget that at one time, loads of great music was written just for advertising!
