"I just received my latest batch of 45s with Count Basie's Farmer's Market Barbecue. Wow! This is what it's all about! I just wanted to thank you and let you know that they're killer." - Bob Hall, Fantasy 45 Series subscriber

From his earliest days in territory bands in the Southwest, Count Basie had a secret: How to make a collection of instrumentalists generate rhythmic thrust so irresistible that no listener's foot could remain motionless. Basie's swing was the opposite of tense. Relaxed is what it was, and powerful. Through five and a half decades, Basie never lost the ability to infect a band with his swing magic. This edition of his swing machine, recorded just a couple of years before his death, is evidence of the continuing force of that magic.
