CD Reviews

No finer swing
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is no finer music than the hard swinging sound of the Basie Orchestra during the 30s and 40s. This disc offers all of the great soloists--Pres, Sweets, Mr. Five-by-Five--and all the best works of the band. All the pieces are amazing from the small session work--"Lester Leaps In," "Dickie's Dream"--to the famous big band numbers--"One O'Clock Jump," "Moten Swing." If one wants an introduction to the best band in all of swing: Here it is, straight from Kansas City."
