CD Reviews

One of the best swinging standards ever made
04/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Williams brings all the great standards to life, belting them out like nobody else can. I've had this album for 20 years and I've probably played it as much as anything I've ever played. You won't be disappointed."
Disco obrigatório pra quem curte jazz
Arthur Muhlenberg | 03/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pra quem gosta de standards de jazz ( canções americanas) esse disco é uma preciosidade. Além da orquestra de Basie, para surpresa de ninguém, swingar como nunca, Joe Williams, que eu erradamente pensava só cantar blues, é um intérprete muito especial. O repertório foi muito bem escolhido e só tem pérolas mas eu destacaria três faixas especialmente empolgantes: Thou Swell e My Baby Just Cares for Me e I'm Beggining to See The Light. Foi o melhor disco que eu comprei nos últimos meses. Nota 1000."
THE BEST COMBINATION
Tony Page | Tony Page, Glen Burnie, MD | 06/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first bought the reel-to-reel version of this album in 1963. It is now 43 years since, and finally, found a copy of it on cd. Without a doubt, the quintessential combination of Joe Williams' voice and Count Basie's band are beyond comparison. "Standards" sung and played the way they should have been. No "gimmicks," etc. Just plain, honest and musically incomparable renditions of these songs. It was a sad day for me, when it was announced that, Williams and Basie would no longer appear and record together again. Even sadder is the loss of both of these "GIANTS" within the Jazz and music world. I miss both of them beyond comprehension. This is a MUST recording to include in your musical library."
