Count Basie And The Kansas City 3 For The Second Time on 180g 45RPM 2LP

Anyone who ever heard Count Basie launch his band into a blues with several choruses of effortless piano has lamented that there is far too little of Basie the soloist among his recorded legacy. This shortage was rectified to a certain extent by the trio albums Basie made with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Louis Bellson in the '70s.

Basie's poetic introductions, precise calibrations of touch and coloration and definitive swing create a joyous program of four venerable standards and an equal number of new blues here. Bellson is empathetic throughout and dances with his brushes on "Sandman," while Brown's robust tone and earth-moving walking lines bring out the best in Basie the soloist and accompanist.
