Album cover art for upc 4029759159834
Label: MPS-Jazz
Catalog: 4029759159834
Format: CD

- The first of two Basie recordings for MPS, recorded at the famous Universal Studios in Chicago (1969) - 12 evergreens, concise and in perfection. A great addition to any big band collection - Caused an international sensation with his album "Stolen From Strangers" (2008) - With subtle remastering from the original tape

"To call this musical star hour for the audience and lesson for any big band a Basic Basie is sly understatement. The swing machine shines like greased lightning, every horn section, every break of the drums, every solo in Chico O'Farrill's arrangements is spot on. And even the slower numbers like 'Sweet Lorraine' trickle pleasantly into the ear." (Good Times, April/May 2022)
