Put the Basie band together with Mike Leiber and Jerry Stoller and you have one gloriously swinging affair! In fact, this 1960 album probably has more legends on it than any other album on our entire Collectors Choice Music roster, starting with Leiber and Stoller themselves, perhaps the greatest rock n roll songwriting team ever, then featuring such folks as arranger/saxophonist Frank Foster, Red Mitchell, Hank Jones, Sonnny Payne, Ellis Larkin, Kenny Burrell and recording engineer Phil Ramone (heck, even the venerable Nat Hentoff writes the notes)! Stoller states in the notes that 'We wanted to see, in short, if these songs could get up and walk by themselves,' and, believe us, they RUN! The rockin -est big band album ever, a Collectors Choice Music exclusive.

The songs on this CD are fun to listen to. They are recorded in happy big bad sound. In fact the music was recorded by members of Count Basie"s band in 1960 but they sound fresh. The reason I subtracted one star is due to its brevity but not the quality of the music.
Thank you for your feedback.
