Count Basie At The Savoy Ballroom

LP (Item 580715) Everest, 1937 — Condition: Near Mint-

Recorded in NYC on June 30, 1937, with Buck Clayton on lead trumpet, Ed Lewis and Bobby Moore on trumpet, George Hunt and Dan Minor on trombones, Jack Washington on alto and baritone, Herschel Evans and Lester Young on clarinet and tenor, Walter Page on bass, Jo Jones on drums, Freddy Green on guitar, and Earl Warren on alto. Guest vocal appearances by Billie Holiday and Jimmy Rushing.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s issue.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A Basie 2-fer! First up is Kanas City Suite – a great little set – despite our initial fears! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of hoke – but this album's a surprisingly great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Basie Big Band
Pablo, 1975. Very Good+
The Basie band is plenty big here – but never too much so to lose their confident swing of earlier years! The Count is still firmly at the helm at the time of this recording – leading and playing keys with that spacious, stepping quality that makes a Basie number of the later years ...

Verve, 1965. Near Mint-
Count Basie picks his own set of "winners" – tracks pulled from the pop charts, and re-arranged by Billy Byers to give them the true Basie touch – that soaring, syncopated groove that makes the Basie band so great at this stretch in their career!

Lester Young

Lester Young (Pres)
Charlie Parker/Everest, Early 50s. Sealed
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s. The quality of the recording isn't great, and you hear a heck of a lot of crowd noise – but the work's an interesting document of Pres during the period, as the tunes are all ...

Jo Jones

Jo Jones Trio
Everest, 1959. Very Good
A real classic from drummer Jo Jones – and the kind of a spare session that really lets his work on drums come to the forefront! Jo's working here with Ray Bryant on piano and brother Tommy Bryant on bass – in a mode that's got some of the soulful undercurrents of the Bryant recordings ... LP, Vinyl record album
Counterpoint/Everest, 1957. Sealed
Obscure trio material from pianist Al Haig – recorded later than most of his more famous bop sides, with a trio that includes Bill Crow on bass and Lee Abrams on drums. The setting is pretty open ended on most tunes – with Haig playing solo on 3 numbers, and the rhythm team joining in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Light My Fire
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
A masterpiece – one of 2 crazy albums in which Woody Herman's late band meets the Cadet arrangements of Richard Evans. You might think the combination wouldn't work – Woody's big band flourishes meeting up with Evans' compressed soulful grooves – but gosh, the record is simply ... LP, Vinyl record album
