45rpm 180g Vinyl Double LP!

A very clear recommendation for all music lovers, especially for the fans of the big band sound with full dynamic range. Originally released in 1986, here's the double-LP edition from 2016. Recorded at the legendary Criteria Studio, Miami, Florida with additional recordings and final mix at Arco Studios, Munich.

Caterina Valente (born January 14, 1931 in Paris, France) is a French-born, Italian multilingual singer, guitarist, dancer, and actress. Valente is a polyglot; she speaks six languages, and sings in eleven. While she is best-known as an international performer, Valente also spent part of her career in the United States, where she performed alongside Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Perry Como, and Ella Fitzgerald, among others. The Count Basie Orchestra is a 16- to 18-piece big band, one of the most prominent jazz performing groups of the swing era, founded by Count Basie in 1935 and recording regularly from 1936. Despite a brief disbandment at the beginning of the 1950s, the band survived long past the big band era itself and the death of Basie in 1984. It continues as a "ghost band".
