Reseña de álbum

At the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival, the music was consistently inspired and often historic. Count Basie welcomed back tenor great Lester Young and singer Jimmy Rushing for part of a very memorable set highlighted by "Boogie Woogie" and "Evenin'"; Young plays beautifully throughout and Rushing is in prime form. An exciting full-length version of "One O'Clock Jump" features Young, Illinois Jacquet, and trumpeter Roy Eldridge; the Basie band stretches out on "Swingin' at Newport"; and five previously unreleased selections (put out for the first time on this CD) include four Joe Williams vocals. It's a great set of music.

A Must Have- almost

I am a basie enthusiast, and i must say, this may be my favorite album i own. the only way this could get better would be to add corner pocket and april in paris. These songs are both widely available, so it is not a problem. if you are new to basie, get this album and those two songs. if you are a veteran to basie, then this is a must have. basie swings harder then ever, and with lester young, the most prominant tenor of this era, you just cannot get any better...


The Count at his best. Jam-packed with jazz icons galore, this album is great fun. Besides, you just can't beat a live jazz recording from the 50's. For those new to Bassie, this is a first-class introduction. For seasoned Bassie enthusiasts, this album definietly delivers - and then some.

The Best

I listened to Count Basie's "Smack Dab in the Middle" today and I listened to it nine times afterwards. I am stil listening to it. I had bought a group of songs about a week ago and had not listened to this one. I don't have very many Jazz songs on my i-pod, but this one is awesome. I really like jazz now. I created a new playlist with it as # 1 accompanied afterwards by really upbeat Latin party music. It is a really good combo, but I like the Jazz better. I am part of the teenagers of the 21st Century who have never attempted to listen to jazz before.

Count Basie was among the most important bandleaders of the swing era. With the exception of a brief period in the early '50s, he led a big band from 1935 until his death almost 50 years later, and the band continued to perform after he died. Basie's orchestra was characterized by a light, swinging rhythm section that he led from the piano, lively ensemble work, and generous soloing. Basie was not a composer like Duke Ellington or an important soloist like Benny Goodman. His instrument was his band,...
