Actually; the only reason I don't give this handsome two-for-one cd album 5 stars is the fact I'm a jazz fan. For both albums I can say:

this is a nice piece of swinging popular music, but my problem is not only the fact it is a waste to put Basie's orchestra in subservient role,
I've also heard older Mills Brothers' recordings with far more verve and versatility - in the swing era they were much more ready to imitate instruments and at least fake improvising.
And what's with the "I dig rock and roll music" song? Is it a feeble joke?

However, if you like Basie's work with other popular singers (Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra etc.) you'll love this one as well.

The second album "Annual Report" is actually slightly better and more swinging, perhaps thanks to the arranger Chico O'Farrell (?!).
All of my favorite performances from this CD are from that album - "The Glow Worm", "Sent for you Yesterday", "Sunny" and "Cielito lindo". But maybe it's because I first heard these numbers some, well, 15-20 years ago.
First album - "The Board of Directors" - is arranged by Dick Hyman, a highly esteemed jazz personality himself...

If I had to pick one CD out of my whole collection as a favourite it would be this one. It contains the only two albums made of the Mills Brothers as featured vocalist with the Count Basie band and they certainly make the most of it. The album covers seem to show four brothers but at the time of the recordings (1967-8) there were only three not that you'd know it from the harmonies they put up or even their part singing. But what do details matter it's the music that you listen to, and this is of the best.
