This man can can bring water to boil with the heat he pours on with this offering. If big band swing music appeals to you, then you sure can't go wrong with this CD , which is fabulously recorded. Long live the music of Bill Basie.

HASH(0x9d82a8f4) out of 5 stars The Count is mellow 3 Sept. 2005
By Bomojaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of Basie's big band albums for Pablo, recorded in May 1983, as opposed to the many small group ones he did for that label. Basie is in a mellow mood on this outing, with tempos relaxed or slow. Four of the tunes are blues; SUNDAY AT THE SAVOY is over 12 minutes long and way down home and nice. Eric Dixon (ts), Sonny Cohn (tp), Chris Woods (as) and Booty Wood (tb) are the chief soloist, and Sam Nestico did the excellent arranging. One of Basie's better Pablo recordings, which is saying a lot.

HASH(0x9d82a948) out of 5 stars A must own for those wanting classic jazz recordings. 22 April 2014
By MS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The sound and performance of this CD is one of the best in my collection. If you are one attempting to compile some key jazz classics for your collection and do not own this one, please pick it up. The critics loved this Basie recording and you will too. The sound and the music is excellent.
HASH(0x9d82ac24) out of 5 stars A masterful achievement 1 Dec. 2015
By Todd Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sammy Nestico's compositions and arrangements here were a perfect fit for the 80s Basie band. There is still a solid concentration on the blues, but with a more contemporary feel that made the band sound like a modern force instead of a repertory company. The one-star review below is fairly ridiculous; Basie's band evolved with the times, and did so more successfully than many of his contemporaries. This is still timeless music.

HASH(0x9d82f168) out of 5 stars So elegant so smooth so swinging 26 Oct. 2011
By J. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Count - a uniqiue style where less says more and so elegantly done. If you have two or three representative CDs of his work, this is a good one to have. Just plain enjoyable.
HASH(0x9d82aa08) out of 5 stars The Best Of Both Worlds............... 10 Jun. 2008
By Robert J. Ament - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
four cuts of the big band with arrangements by Sammy Nestico and two small group selections by the Count, "Contractor's Blues" and "Sunday At The Savoy", allowing the soloists to stretch out. I'm not sure why Freddie Green was not present on the big band cuts, but Joe Pass, as a guest, is a pleasant surprise for the two small group cuts.

This is the usual fine mellow groove that became the Basie stock in trade, indeed its signature.....fine solid performances both in section work and as soloists coupled with an impeccable swinging beat.

This is another fine selection for those who care for the best in big band swing and Count Basie in particular.
