Biography

William Basie was a key figure in the development of the jazz big band. Perhaps of secondary importance was his work as a keyboard player — even Basie was sufficiently modest about this area of activity that he once described himself as a "non-pianist." But his bands were also a crucial formative experience for many musicians, who would have received less encouragement and less ... Read more in Amazon's Count Basie Store

Format:Audio CD
With tracks mostly from the 1947 (in big band and small band format),
with one interesting track from '49 ("After you've gone" - Jimmy Rushing's mellow side is shown in slower tempo) plus two tracks from '50 ("If You See My Baby" & "Sweets"),
this CD bring the best out of Bill Basie...

There's no Lester Young in the band any more, but the Basie wagon is still swinging hard, with Sweets Edison, Emmett Berry, Jimmy Rushing, Paul Gonsalves, Charlie Price, Buddy Tate, George Matthews, Jack Washington, Snooky Young, Freddie Green, Walter Page, Jo Jones and others
(the 1950 tracks are by the octet Harry Edison - tp, Dicky Wells-tb, Georgie Auld, Gene Ammons -ts, Basie-p, Green-p, Al McKibbon-b, Gus Johnson-dm PLUS "Google Eyes"-vo - I have no idea who's that guy singing; he sounds OK)

The package is a bit shoddy - it gives the personnel and date for each track in cronology, but tracks are not ordered the same ways and it doesn't name the soloists (which can be fun if your'e into guessing and testing your swing listening skills); the essay on Basie in 3 languages is to general, all of which is normal for Planet Jazz series.
But since this is not the most well known period of Basie's work, if you don't have these tracks (AND if it's not too expensive), I'd buy if I were you.

4.0 out of 5 stars BASIE in 1947, 1949 and 1950 (with Edison, Rushing, Tate, Wells, Gonsalves, Jones...) 8 Dec 2012
By Nikica Gilic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With tracks mostly from the 1947 (in big band and small band format),
with one interesting track from '49 ("After you've gone" - Jimmy Rushing's mellow side is shown in slower tempo) plus two tracks from '50 ("If You See My Baby" & "Sweets"),
this CD bring the best out of Bill Basie... For instance, there's a spirited performance of "Shine on, Harvest Moon" where Bill plays with just his rhythm-team of Green, Page and Jones.

There's no Lester Young in the band any more, but the Basie wagon is still swinging hard, with Sweets Edison, Emmett Berry, Jimmy Rushing, Paul Gonsalves, Charlie Price, Buddy Tate, George Matthews, Jack Washington, Snooky Young, Freddie Green, Walter Page, Jo Jones and others
