“Basie” by Count Basie and his Orchestra - album review

TJR says

A snazzy set for sure. “The Kid From Red Bank” gets proceedings off to a frenzied start before “Duet” and “After Supper” calm things down with a bluesier, more laid back approach. Throughout, the mood of the swing orchestra is more inclined to the biff bang pow, and it comes as no great surprise to learn that this entire set was composed by Neal Hefti, who went on to produce themes for Hollywood. He was born to score Batman.
