Crítica do álbum

This unusual session first appeared on LP in 1958, featuring Count Basie exclusively on organ accompanying Joe Williams' vocals over a dozen numbers, mostly standards. Although Basie's recordings on the instrument were sporadic, his style is not at all different from the one he utilized at the piano, filling in the holes and providing just enough backing for his very fine singer. Williams' vocals seem effortless throughout the date, though excessive reverb is frequently added. The unidentified rhythm section is anchored by long-time Basie guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Eddie Jones, and drummer Sonny Payne (who sticks mostly to brushes); what's rather unusual about the date is that Green actually takes several brief solos on his unamplified instrument! A muted trumpet also appears on the lush "If I Could Be With You" (possibly Joe Newman or Snooky Young?), with the frequently omitted verse added. Other highlights include the easygoing swinger "The One I Love (Belongs to Somebody Else)" and a foot-tapping "Honeysuckle Rose." Since this session was not included in the massive (and, unfortunately, no longer available) Mosaic collection of Roulette studio recordings, this long out of print budget CD reissue (which came out in 1984) may be especially difficult to locate, but it will be greatly appreciated by fans of Count Basie and Joe Williams.

Born in Georgia, he moved to Chicago with his grandmother at the age of three. Reunited with his mother, she taught him to play the piano and took him to the symphony.
