This reissue melds the results of two main sessions, grouped around the December and January period. As far as I can see, these have been available previously as separate albums. The original over-dubbed applause, which gave the false impression of a live audience, has been removed, enabling the music to be heard in its own right. The numbers vary between swingers and ballads, mainly from the standard songbook. A word of caution is necessary because, despite the title and cover illustration, Bennett's long-standing accompanist Ralph Sharon officiated at the keyboard for all but two of the 23 tracks. If you buy this for the vocalist you'll be happy, but don't expect to hear Count Basie tickling the ivories throughout.
