One of the FIVE recordings the Basie Band made for its new label in 1959 and in hindsight the one many call his best. By this time, stereo recording had developed significantly and it shows in the spaciousness of the recording. Big Band is hard to capture in mono as well as it can be recorded in stereo, and this original two track is BIG BAND Stereo! This one gets top recommendations.

I give this record 5 stars because the music and recording is excellent. Be aware that there could be something wrong with this record. My copy had some vinyl scuffed up on one side, which looked worse then it actually is. Still there are audible scratches. And the record is badly de-centered. I decided to not send it back because of the return policy which says that ’I’ have to pay for the return shipment, which would have been $14.

Outstanding recording...
