Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Down Beat (11/92, p.51) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "...It's hard to imagine a more important reissue for this year or any other...Here is the old testament of the first Basie band (1937-1939)...never has completeness been so completely satisfying...[these sides] travel effortlessly across time on the wings of an astounding rhythm section..."

Musician (7/92, p.100) - "...Here's the root of all that is good in American music...this music defined swing, as the soloists--Harry "Sweets" Edison, Lester Young, Buck Clayton, Basie, Herschel Evans and Jimmy Rushing--defined their individual instruments..."

Jazziz (Dec.-Jan./92, p.94) - Picked by critic Leonard Feather as one of the 10 best jazz albums of 1992.
