Six bucks!? How can you not go for it?

"This was a very good album. Basie's stuff is always better live, and I strongly recommend this one. You get a couple of tracks from "April in Paris" that really come alive in a live setting ("Corner Pocket," "Sweety Cake"). There's some new stuff I hadn't seen before, like the trumpet feature "Pensive Miss," which I really liked. Great versions of "Li'l Darlin" and "Cute." Strong Neal Hefti songs round out the album. My favorite track, though, is the baritone sax feature for Charlie Fowlkes, "Spring is Here" - very rare, great sound. This is thankfully devoid of the standards "One O'Clock Jump" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside;" they aren't bad songs, but they're on every other live Basie album. Coupled with a six dollar price tag, this CD is a must have for any Basie fan."
Great "LIVE" big band recording

"Love this album. It amazes me though, that the crowd in the background is talking and drinking while this great band is performing (like they get to see Basie every night). The recording is not enhanced or particularly well done, but captures the "Live" sound exactly as it was. You can hear on these tracks what made Count Basie great."
Count Basie's best recording ever!

"Count Basie swings with the best of them! This live recording is the best Basie I've found, from the laid-back Freddie Green standard "Corner Pocket" to the definitive version of Neil Hefti's "Cute""
