Count Basie & His Orchestra – Me And You (1983)(Pablo)

A short eight track CD 5 big band, 3 small group tracks made up from the big band personnel, all recorded in 1983. Sadly on the title track Basie's introduction is under recorded and is swamped by the bass, that aside there is a nice selection of numbers at a wider than usual set of tempos. Basie had been with Norman Grantz (Pablo) since 1972 and was to die a year later. At the time he was suffering from arthritis but he believed there was no such thing as old age and this CD proves it.

This Pablo recording from 1976 represents a new revitilised Basie band. After some years of having almost not recorded at all, due to problems with stable personnel, William Basie at this time has found a new drummer, Butch Miles and a new arranger, Bill Holman, who was asked to write charts especially for this project. Because of this, these recordings are a pleasant breakaway from a long tradition of using the Sammy Nestico charts over and over again. And what a talent this Basie band has in its ranks: Sonny Cohn and the sparkling Bobby Mitchell provide the trumpet solos, in the trombone department you`ll hear the one and only plunger specialist Al Grey, supported by Curtis Fuller and Bill Hughes. Of course the star soloist of the band is still there playing with the reeds: Jimmy Forrest, with his fat, gutty attack on the tenorsax. Besides the brilliant new scores on this album, Holman arranged two famous standards for Basie, `Something To Live For` and `Too Close For Comfort`. In listening to them, you get almost the feeling that Basie`s third Atomic period had started. Definitely a Basie for your collection at home.

The MPS label scored a coup when they were able to set up a recording date with the Basie orchestra. It took place on October 20th, 1969 at Universal Studios in Chicago. As agreed upon, the band brought along standards from the Basie book, and the Count fulfilled MPS head Hans Georg Brunner-Schwers wish that Basie play longer piano passages than usual; normally Basie limited himself to a short riff here and there. The way Basie and his orchestra played reminded me of a top long distance runner, producer Sonny Lester commented in the liner notes to the album. He went on to say that the bands playing was, disciplined, clean, with such a feel for timing and teamwork that you had the feeling that every band member was guided by the same brain. The best-known names in that particular group were tenor saxophonist Eddie Lockjaw Davis and guitarist Freddie Green, a Basie mainstay over the decades.

Fans of Martha Davis and the Motels have reason to rejoice, whether they first embraced the new wave band during the early '80s when the Motels came roaring out of Los Angeles with their blockbusters "Only The Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer" for Capitol Records, or in their more recent and equally powerful incarnation. Martha has assembled a collection of extreme rarities for this collection spotlighting her at the height of her formidable vocal power.

Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | 32:42 min | 330 MB | Digital booklet
Label: Winter & Winter | Tracks: 07 | Rls.date: 2016

Composed in 2012 and 2013, Let me tell you is a dramatic monologue voiced by a character who requires us to hear her. That character is not quite the Ophelia of Shakespeare s Hamlet; her entire text is made up from words Ophelia speaks in that play, but she uses these words in different ways, to express herself differently. Barbara Hannigan is known worldwide as a soprano of vital expressive force directed by exceptional technique. She brings the same high energy to her varied activities as a conductor as well as to her singing, including recent engagements with Simon Rattle, Kent Nagano, and David Zinman.

Recorded three years after their first full album together, this second encounter between Count Basie and Oscar Peterson on twin pianos (this time with a quartet) is as strong as the original, alternating standards with blues. Both Peterson and Basie have one number apiece on electric piano, making this album historic as well as quite musical. –Scott Yanow
