The Essential Count Basie, Vol. I
Open iTunes to preview, buy and download music.
Rather than release all of Count Basie's studio recordings (as Decca recently has or as French Columbia did in two large LP sets over a decade ago), CBS has put together three samplers that contain some (but not all) of the essential Basie recordings from the 1939-41 period. This first volume has Lester Young's great solo on 1936's "Lady Be Good," and the classics "Rock-A-Bye Basie" and "Taxi War Dance, " and fine examples of the Basie orchestra throughout 1939.
Born: 21 August 1904 in Red Bank, NJ
Years Active: '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s
