CD Reviews

A rare find
COMPUTERJAZZMAN | Cliffside Park, New Jersey United States | 12/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"while my favorite Basie stuff is from the 50's, and the albums he did with Frank Sinatra, these are really good arrangements and the band swings. If you love the music of Count Basie and the music of the Beatles, you will not be disappointed with this CD"
Still a great band, playing Bob Florence's arrangements
Elwood Conway | Frankfort, KY United States | 08/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, Basie had to sell some records and the Beatles worked once for him (Basie's Beatle Bag) so he and the producers went back to that well. This one surpasses the earlier release in both musicianship and by having Bob Florence do the arrangements. This is a great example of late 1960s big band jazz."
