Count Basie: Live in Sweden

Album Notes

All of the music on this CD reissue plus a great deal more was previously released on a Mosaic eight-CD box set. Count Basie's final Roulette recordings before his band would drift artistically throughout the troublesome 1960's, these Stockholm concerts feature Basie's orchestra still in peak form with such soloists as trumpeter Thad Jones, trombonists Quentin Jackson and Benny Powell, Frank Wess on flute and tenor, tenorman Frank Foster and guest trumpeter Benny Bailey. Highlights include "Good Time Blues," "Blues Backstage" and Irene Reid's outing on "Backwater Blues." This CD is easily recommended to Basie collectors who do not already own the limited-edition Mosaic box. ~ Scott Yanow
