Audio Beat Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sound! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

A session from 1960 with Basie and his Orchestra in absolute top form. It's hardly surprising when you see the line up of star players and also the fact that every single selection was written by Benny Carter.

''The Kansas City that Count Basie found himself in had become the hard core of vital new jazz. It was a place where the musicians who expressed this new jazz could, from night through morning, and on again the next night, sit in on numerous jam sessions. It was a place where musicians like Walter Page, Benny Moten, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Andy Kirk, Coleman Hawkins and many more, could be found working, experimenting and Living their music. This was Count Basie's Kansas City, and this is the Kansas City that Benny Carter has dedicated this music to." - from liner notes

“This is ambitious music from the two greatest large ensembles in jazz history [PPRLP52056 Count Basie & His Orchestra Kansas City Suite: The Music of Benny Carter & PPRLP1033 Duke Ellington Such Sweet Thunder] and the presentation and sound of these reissued LPs are top notch.” – John Crossett,, 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sound!
