Prestige, Late 50s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
The title tells the tale on this one – as the session's a studio meeting of players all associated with Count Basie over the years – captured here in a style that's much more laidback and relaxed than the usual Basie set! Originally issued as 2 separate LPs a year apart, and both have ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing work from Sun Ra – record that really features a great range of sounds and styles, and a heck of a lot of soul as well!
