Count Basie and Frank Sinatra had the perfect arrangement at the Sands. Before the Chairman hit the stage in Vegas, Count Basie and his big band warmed up the already enthusiastic crowd with a brief set of their own. A dynamite entertainer, the legendary leader causes hearts to race, hips to shake, and fingers to snap with high-energy readings of his trademark swing music, taken to feverish heights by both his first-rate orchestra and the incredibly swank setting. Fortunately, the finest of Basie and Co.’s introductory performances from the historic 1966 dates have been preserved here and serve as a seminal complement to Sinatra’s iconic Live at the Sands. Mastered from the original master tapes, our hybrid SACD version of Live at the Sands (Before Frank) gives you a dead-center, eighth-row seat at the famed Sin City club. You’ll just need to supply your own table and cocktail. Renowned for its sonic clarity, transparency, crispness, and punch, the record is now tremendously enhanced, with improved tonality, a deeper soundstage, correct balances, and lifelike presence.

"Europe1 regularly recorded jazz concerts for broadcast during the 1950s and '60s, so this 1960 performance by Count Basie at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris is representative of the heights of the band during the era in which Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Frank Foster, Marshall Royal and Frank Wess were all a part of the group. The set list is diverse, blending originals by bandmembers and Neal Hefti (one of the most prolific contributors to Basie at the time), favorites from other bands' repertoire and a few blues…"

Count Basie defined the jazz meaning of swing. His band could get more bounce from a line that any other. And though his soloists were never of highest dazzle, they always fit the program. These live recordings from 1959, 1961 and 1962 capture the Count at his comfort. Mosaic has done its usual fine job with them on eight CDs. Roulette itself has reissued 12 of the cuts on a single CD entitled ``Basie in Sweden,`` for those who just want a taste.

Bristling with excitement and electricity, this 1958 album represents the finest accomplishment of Count Basie's "New Testament" big band. His "Old Testament" band of the late 1930s, featuring stars Lester Young, Herschel Evans, Dickie Wells, and Buck Clayton, perfected the blues-drenched, straight 4/4 rhythm of Kansas City swing. Building on the blues foundation, this 1950s band features more ambitious compositions and a more dynamic sound and incorporates more modern developments. ~ Amazon

If you really want to get the feeling and experience the essence of this 17 piece Basie organization, consider this one.It's vintage Basie. This a live, studio audience performance.Trombonist Booty Wood is as colorful and flexible as ever. Eric Dixon and Kenny Hing handle the tenor solos fluently and melodiously. And of course, Basie demonstrates is unique flair for injecting his piano accents just at the right time. Since this is a "live" performance, expect the person on the soundboard to be a little slow on the trigger at times. It was recorded orginally in 1979.
