Live Recording On 180g Vinyl LP!

Despite its title, this great concert by the Basie band was recorded live in the summer of 1956 in Gothenburg, Sweden, not in London. The album was recorded during a tour that did not involve any UK dates due to the ongoing American Federations of Musicians/Musicians Union dispute.

The rhythm section, with the great Freddie Green, Eddie Jones and Sonny Payne, is the ultimate basic of the band, and, of course, the key man here is The Count himself. All musicians are at the top of their games, the crowd is fanatically enthusiastic and the band returns their enthusiasm in full. Here is Basie's band at its best! With Joe Williams, the band backs the erudite deep-throated singer on a choogling "Alright, Okay, You Win", the quick "Roll 'Em Pete" and "The Comeback". This is the great Count Basie band in a classic time period, playing many well-known, long-lasting and beloved tunes that everybody will recognize.
