Count Basie OrchestraLegend, The Legacy ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1989. Used ... $3.99
The Basie Orchestra pays tribute to their departed Count – and the groove here is every bit the sort you'd expect from the ensemble at their height! Frank Foster's in the lead with the group at this point, and he's definitely back in the Basie bag, after stretching out soulfully on his own in the 70s – guiding players who include Eric Dixon, Danny Turner, and David Glasser on reeds; Sonny Cohn, Byron Stripling, and Mike Williams on trumpets; Bill Hughes, Mel Wanzo, and Clarence Banks on trombones; and rhythm from Carl Ace Carter on piano, Cleveland Eaton on bass, and Duffy Jackson on drums. Carmen Bradford sings a bit, and titles include "Papa Foss", "Bring On The Raindrops", "Katherine The Great", "Whirly Bird", and "The Count Basie Remembrance Suite". CD

Sarah Vaughan & The Count Basie OrchestraSend In The Clowns – Sarah Vaughan & The Count Basie Orchestra ... LP
Pablo, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Sarah Vaughan is working here with the Count Basie orchestra – but in a way that's still relatively relaxed, and very much in keeping with her best modes of the Pablo years! There's less of the Basie bombast than you might expect on the record – and the group, arranged and conducted by Sam Nestico, leave plenty of room for Vaughan to step out in that warmly flowing vocal style that characterized her best later albums. Most numbers build slowly – with Sarah's vocals leading the cues, and the band glowing in the background to color things in before taking off – and titles include "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues", "Just Friends", "Ill Wind", "If You Could See Me Now", "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Indian Summer", and "When Your Lover Has Gone".

✨✧ Count Basie & His OrchestraBasie's Beatle Bag ... CD
Verve, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little record – with results that are even greater than the sum of its parts! As you'd guess from the title, Count Basie takes on the 60s sounds of The Beatles – but he's doing so with arrangements from the great Chico O'Farrill – who really keeps things interesting throughout – throwing in those hip rhythms and odd twists and turns he first forged with his Latin recordings – in ways that definitely live up to the groovy pedigree of the tunes. And the Basie group's got a groovier sound than usual – probably due to the arrangements – and Basie plays some nice organ riffs on a number of the album's tracks – one of the Count's rare outings on the instrument, always a treat. Titles include "Help!", "Can't Buy Me Love", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "All My Loving", and "And I Love Her". Proof that The Beatles' influence was way farther reaching than you'd ever expect! CD

Andre PersianyAndre Persiany & His Orchestra – Featuring Guy Lafitte ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
There was a special sort of magic in the larger groups on the French scene of the postwar years – a quality of playing and arrangement that wasn't the same as American big bands, and which instead brought in some really creative interplay between the instrumental elements in the lineup! It might be said that these groups were born after bop, and also carried some modern jazz ideas forward too – and that's definitely the case here, with work from pianist Andre Persiany – whose groups on the record are all pretty darn hip! As indicated by the title, there's some wonderful work from Guy Lafitte on tenor – a player who can move between familiar and modern modes with effortless ease – and other players inlcude Bill Jackson and Lucian Juanico on trumpets, Michel De Villers on baritone, Maurice Meunier and Jean Claude Fohenbach on tenors, and Teddy Hameline and Michel Attenoux on altos – players who move beautifully together under Persiany's leadership. A number of cuts are originals by the leader, and there's a number of Basie tunes, remade in a great way – as the 23 track CD pulls together material from three different 10" album releases, the last of which is Andre Persiany Joue Count Basie. Titles include "Halbe Funf", "Blue Organ", "T Bone Steak", "Beer Barrel Bounce", "Little Story", "Panorama", "Shorty George", "Two Cats & A Piece Of Lung", and "Just For Fun". CD

Frank Sinatra & Count BasieFrank Sinatra & Count Basie – The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings (Sinatra-Basie: An Historical Document/It Might As Well Be Swing) ... CD
Reprise/Concord, 1962/1964. Used ... $9.99
The great pair of albums by Frank Sinatra backed by Count Basie and his incredible orchestra from the early 60s – Sinatra-Basie from '62 and It Might As Well Be Swing from '64 – together in a single set! Sinatra-Basie is the inaugural effort from the 2 leaders and the stellar orchestra – and it's a great one. Sinatra is as charismatic and loose out front as he's ever been on record, and the Basie & his players swing brilliantly with arrangements by Neal Hefti. Titles include "Pennies From Heaven", "Please Be Kind", "My Kind Of Girl", "Learnin' The Blues", "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and more. It Might As Well Be Swing is simply one of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! This one features some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them. This picks up on a seminal beat change in 60s pop, the same sort of gentle snapping groove that you'd find in the best work by Bacharach, a shift that really infuses Frank's vocals with a whole new sound, one that shows that he's ready to keep on growing and growing after being stuck in a Nelson Riddle rut. All tracks are superb – hip 60s pop and show tunes, like "I Believe In You", "Fly Me To the Moon", "More", "The Good Life", "Wives & Lovers", and "I Wanna Be Around". CD

Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them.

Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". CD

✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenney Sings For Playboys ... CD
Decca/Universal (Japan), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare Decca album lead by the smoky vocals of Beverly Kenney – a really unique late 50s/early 60s jazz girl who once worked for the Dorsey brothers, the Count Basie Orchestra and others, and only ever cut a handful of albums under her own name! Sings for Playboys is an intimate, sultry batch of tunes that have a really unique feel thanks to the super spare accompaniment of just Ellis Larkins on piano and Joe Benjamin on bass. That approach does a great job of transforming your senses to the smoky, boozy after hours cabaret that must have been in mind when the recordings were conceived. The album only ever appeared briefly in the late 50s before now (possibly because of the unauthorized and quite obvious reference to Playboy Magazine in the title and in the cover photo) but it's sure great to see it reappear – they didn't make a lot records like this in the big band dominated recordings of the era! 12 tracks including "Do It Again", "A Woman's Intuition", "Mama, Do I Gotta?", "A Lover Like You", "A Summer Romance", "It's Magic", and more.

Stanley Wilson/Skip MartinMusic From M Squad/Music From Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1959. Used ... $9.99
Two 50s crime soundtracks on one CD! Stanley Wilson conducted the music to this 50's cop show called M-Squad, but the music was composed by him, Count Basie, and Benny Carter. Carter plays with the group, which also includes Red Mitchell, Pete Candoli, Frank Rosolino, and John Williams – and he's the only reed player, which gives his solos a nice prominence. The sound of the music is mostly 50's crime, with a few dramatic themes thrown in. Most of the cuts are fairly jazzy, including "M Squad Theme", "The Chase", "Phantom Raiders", and "The Juke Box". The music to Mike Hammer was arranged and conducted by Skip Martin – and it's very much in a similar RCA crime jazz mode, although perhaps with a few more orchestral mood passages, fitting to the writing of Spillane. Titles include "Bad Guys", "Coffee House", "Like Mike", "Summer Mood", "Corn Pone Woman", and "Riff Blues". CD
