• Count BASIE - Dance Sessions

Count Basie was among the most important bandleaders of his era. With the exception of a brief period in the early '50s, he led a big band from 1935 until his death almost 50 years later.

This issue covers the initial recordings by Basie's "New Testament Band", including all the tracks from the Dance Session albums from 1952 - 1954. Plus small group tracks with guests Oscar Peterson and Buddy Rich.

An extensive 12 page booklet containing complete discography with identification of arrangers and soloists.
