4.0 out of 5 stars Still more magic!, 3 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Count on the Coast 2 (Audio CD)
For background information, see my review of Vol 1. The material on Vol 2 was recorded by "The Expert Engineer" (Wally Heider, a master at his craft) during the same period in the summer of 1958 when Count and his wonderful "New Testament" band were in residence at the Crescendo Club in Los Angeles. Once again, the listener is transported back more than a half-century to a table close to the band, to hear that wonderful band play, and to be fully absorbed into the club atmosphere. This time, the repertoire includes only One O'Clock Jump (with fine trumpet work by Joe Newman) from its early recordings. There is greater emphasis on material that the band had recorded on more recent albums - most notably the great "Atomic Mr Basie" (Duet; Teddy the Toad; The Kid from Red Bank) and "Basie plays Hefti" (Pensive Miss; Scoot; Late Date) - plus other stand-out numbers such as Who, Me?; Shiny Stockings; and April in Paris. But they are all fresh as a daisy. And, this time, there are 5 numbers by vocalist Joe Newman. Wonderful stuff. Overall, not quite up to the tremendous standard of Vol 1. The system allowed me to give that only 5 stars although it deserved far more. In the circumstances, I've had to give this one 4 stars (but read 4.7).
