Following the decline of the big bands, Count Basie found himself obliged to adopt a smaller format in the beginning of the fifties. The following years were an exciting period for experimenting, and they allowed him to put an inimitable style into practice, a sound that was unique with no real heirs, and a new repertoire widely influenced by the surrounding modernism. This essential anthology of rare studio cuts complements vol. 53 of our series (Count Basie Septet & Octet “On Film and Live”), and gives the chance to listen to small bands composed of great soloists – Clark Terry, Wardell Gray, Buddy DeFranco…
