Count Basie – Kansas City Septem / Mostly Blues And Some Others – Cassette
Count Basie’s final small-group studio session (one of a countless number for Norman Granz during Basie’s last decade), this outing features trumpeter Snooky Young (who was last with the orchestra in the early ’60s), tenor great Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis and the dependable guitarist Joe Pass (along with rhythm guitarist Freddie Green). The repertoire lives up to the album’s title: blues and swing standards all played with joy and spirit.
