Basie was getting all over the place during the 50s – and this set's a great little concert recorded in London! The album's classic Basie for Verve – with Joe Williams on vocals on 3 tracks, and a tight group that includes Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Benny Powell, Matthew Gee, and Frank Foster. Titles include "Flute Juice", "Nails", "Blues Backstage", "Corner Pocket", "Roll Em Pete", and "Well All Right Okay You Win". (Verve Inc pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some splitting on the bottom seam, with some pencil and a couple of small stains on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
