CD Reviews

Truly wonderful recordings
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 03/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the second volume in Chronological Classics' complete Count Basie recordings, which collects a handful of Decca sessions. The masterpieces continue to roll off the cutting machines: "Sent for you yesterday," (with Jimmy Rushing taking the vocal), "Every tub," "Swingin' the blues," "Doggin' around," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," and "Shorty George" to name just a few. Lester Young and his alter ego Herschel Evans are here in force, as are Buck Clayton, Sweets Edison, Dicky Wells, and Jack Washington. Bands today should hope to be half as good as this Basie contingent. More must-have recordings."
