Ken Burns Jazz Collection: Count Basie is one in a series of CDs accompanying the Ken Burns's documentary Jazz. Count Basie did some label-hopping through his career, which makes a definitive greatest hits collection rather difficult. Another complicating factor is Basie's unflappable evenness--his music was almost always on the money, mixing lithe swing, hard-punching riffs and rhythms with awesome balance. This 19-song collection begins with Basie at the piano in Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra for the 1932 "Toby". They're kicking much harder than Basie would later advocate in his own bands, but the light's burning no less bright for that. The 10 tracks following "Toby" show Basie the bandleader chugging in the late 1930s with an all-star cast, including Lester Young blowing a cool tenor while the band bounces on "John's Idea" and "Jumpin' At The Woodside". The set shifts to the 1940s with "9:20 Special" and then to the 1950s for "Softly, With Feeling". The final five tunes, all dating from the mid 1950s, find Basie laying back, not resting on any laurels, but celebrating the grooves he pioneered two decades before. If there was one missing element here, it might be Decca-era Jimmy Rushing belting out "Sent For You Yesterday", but that's quibbling with a spectacular, almost bulletproof set. --Andrew Bartlett
