Product Description

This 1957 performance, which united Count Basie's contemporary band with its greatest alumni, was a truly festive event that reached back to the 1930s for some of the repertoire and some of the guests. The contrasting tenors of Lester Young and Illinois Jacquet, drummer Jo Jones, trumpeter Roy Eldridge, and the great Kansas City blues shouter Jimmy Rushing are all featured, as is the band's regular vocalist, Joe Williams. The band, a great unit on its own, shines in support of Young on his trademark "Lester Leaps In," while Rushing matches the band's collective power on "Sent for You Yesterday" and "Boogie Woogie." Basie's piano sounds more inspired than usual, and the extended jam session on "One O'Clock Jump" is a triumph for Eldridge. --Stuart Broomer
