5.0 out of 5 stars Quincy and The Count Score Again !! February 22, 2001
By C. Law
Format:Audio CD
The FULL album title of this is "Hits of The 50's and 60's--This Time By Basie." And if you check the list of tunes, you can see where Reprise Records' producer came up with the name. This is my personal favorite Basie band: Thad Jones, Al Grey, Henry Coker, Marshall Royal, Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Sonny Payne and the ever-present Freddie Green....and the stars really shine on these magnificent Quincy Jones arrangements. These charts are STILL being played by bands 40+ YEARS LATER!! (The album jacket credited Quincy himself as the arranger, but it really was just Quincy's music company--the actual arrangements were done by one of Quincy's writers, Billy Byers! Thanks to John C. Smith and Dan Haerle for sharing their research on this). The band had something of a hit when Billy took a country ballad and added a strong back-beat, with a walking bass line and moved the tempo up a hair..."I Can't Stop Loving You" was an instant success!! In addition to that one, "..San Francisco," "Fly Me To The Moon," "Moon River," "One Mint Julep" and "The Swingin' Shepherd Blues" are all big-band classics. Besides the (11) tunes on the original album, the reissue includes (5) bonus tracks, which had not been previously released. "Pretty Woman" and Billy Byers' satirical "Oh Soul Mio" (for which he DOES get credit, on this reissue) are welcome additions to the reissue.
I REALLY LOVED this album (for anyone who disputes this, the defense produces one totally-worn-out vinyl record) and it's great that new generations of music lovers can now hear this also. If you only have ONE Basie album...MAKE THIS THE ONE!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Basie is the best October 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The one selection that reaches out and grabs you is the 4 plus minute rendition of I Can't Stop Loving You.. It is impossible not to tap your foot or move around. If you like real brass and feeling sax then this song steals the show. As a pro wrestler I use it for a special 4 minute entrance...great sounds

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Olden Times" May 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I recently heard this selection several months ago and not knowing the title, I was at a loss in running it down for purchase. I heard one cut on the CD and not hearing the title of the of the CD I was having trouble coming up with help on purchasing I finally remembered Amazon and it was there that I hit pay dirt and came up with this 5 star item. I have played it over and over and each time those "Olden Times" return to this 80 year old. The selection is GREAT and now I have again received help in coming up with a long lost memory maker. Thanks AMAZON.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! September 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hi all!
I have many many of Basies recordings from the thirties and onward. Big fan. This is one of the best swingin efforts he made. Do not feel discouraged that the material's origin is pop-oriented the music is 100 Basie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big band at its best December 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If anyone wants to know what a big band should sound like, then this is the album for you. This is absolutely first rate is all respects. Sonny Payne's drumming is a clear demonstration on how a big band drummer should sound and Marshal Royal on What Kind Of Fool Am I is just stunning. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine album! May 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Great album by Basie with fine arrangements by Quincy Jones and Billy Byers....includes the Grammy-winning song "I Can't Stop Loving You." Other tracks that are nice are "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," "Moon River," "Nice 'N' Easy," "Fly Me To The Moon," and "At Long Last Love," played as only Basie can play them.
