Count Basie & Tony Bennett - Basie Swings Tony Sings (Coloured Vinyl)
Originally released in 1959 on Roulette, this meeting finds Count Basie and his band in a peak period: a fantastic rhythm section, tight and powerful brass, silky reeds and skillful arrangers like Neal Hefti doing his charts. And you can hear the glee in his piano playing, to boot. Tony Bennett's vocals seem propelled along with such support and swings right into line on such tunes as "Jeepers Creepers", "Anything Goes" and "I'll Guess I'll Have To Change My Plans". Ballads and up tempo tunes alike are perfect blends for these two masters, who make them all sound fresh. Other songs include Life is A Song, With Plenty of Money and You, Are You Havin' Any Fun, Strike Up The Band, Chicago, I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face, Poor Little Rich Girl, Growing Pains and After Supper.
