Count Basie: Complete Decca Recordings 3-CD Set



When Count Basie left Kansas City in 1936 and headed east to gig, he may have little suspected that he’d also soon begin recording some of the most historically important jazz music of all time, but the proof is in the grooves, and this 3-CD, 63-track, remastered collection is the evidence. The band, which features Lester Young, Buck Clayton, Walter Page, and other future legends, consistently swings with unmatched raucous precision and youthful exuberance. All the famous tunes are here: “One O’Clock Jump,” “Sent for You Yesterday,” “Blue and Sentimental,” “Jumpin’ at the Woodside,” “Jive at Five,” and many others No jazz fan should be without this set. Total Time: 3 hours 6 minutes
