5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant swing reunion November 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant!

This is swing music at its best, the power and energy of classic Basie band recreated in the age of stereo technology. For, Lester Young (one of two swing-era candidates for the best tenorist ever), Jimmy Rushing (perhaps the best blues singer in jazz) and Jo Jones (probably the best swing-drummer) return to the flock.
What a performance - a festival whithin Newport festival!

These veterans give the orchestra (powerful on its own) a new impetus - more than anything else in hard, merciless drive. Solos and obligattos by Young are beautiful, combining brutal blues "primitivism" with proto-modern harmony and tone in Young's inimitable way; Rushing is in his musical prime, while "Papa Jo" does what he does best - Basie's big band remains the most inspiring musical environment for him and he is rhythmicaly as inspiring as ever.

Naturally, the part of the CD with singer Joe Williams (sans Rushing, Young and Jones) although excellent, is not on the level of the recordings with these older giants, but than again, how could it be? It is a pitty that this sort of reunion was not more common.

In addition to great colaboration in the first part of the concert, another giant of swing, Roy "Little Jazz" Eldridge (bop-buffs know him as the musical daddy of Dizzy Gillespie), climbs to the stage to join Young, Jones and Illinois Jacquet for powerful big-band finale. The piano work of Bill Basie, the arragements and ensemble work are top class throughout, so I'm really wondering why You haven't purchased it yet?

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT JO JONES ON DRUMS August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The cover says "JO JONES". WRONG!!!
The drummer is Sonny Payne, as John Hammond says in his presentation.
Payne is a great drummer too, of course, but he have a different style.
The band with Payne is more agressive, and have more complex (and noisy) arrangements.
So, if you buy this CD waiting to hear Jo Jones on drums, you gonna find Sonny Payne.
You will find Jo on the Coleman Hawkins cd with Roy Aldrige also live in Newport.
