A great concert by the Basie band recorded 'LIVE' in the summer of 1956 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The rhythm section, with the great Freddie Green, Eddie Jones and Sonny Payne is the ultimate basic of the band, and, of course, the key man here is The Count himself. All musicians at the top of their games, the crowd is fanatically enthusiastic and the band returns their enthusiasm in full. Here is Basie's band at it's best! With Joe Williams, the band backs the erudite deep-throated singer on a choogling "Alright, Okay, You Win," the quick "Roll 'Em Pete" and "The Comeback." This is the great Count Basie band in a classic time period, playing many well- known, long-lasting, and beloved tunes that everybody will recognize.
