(2-LP set)(45-RPM) Although for many fans the equation Count Basie = Big Band Jazz is quite indisputable, one has to agree that when one listens to these eight numbers: less is more when it comes to swing. As always, the great soloists of the Basie big band are on top form: first and foremost Frank Wess who demonstrates how rightly popular the flute is for it's sound-coloring and as a solo instrument. Thad Jones on the trumpet is quite outstanding in all the numbers - and is equally important as composer and arranger. The "All American Rhythm Group Number 1" consisting of the Count, Freddie Green, Eddie Jones and Sonny Payne deliver one adrenaline-like thrill after another - without ever neglecting the jazz beat.
