For starters, This Time by Basie swings, smooth and easy but taut, or hot and heavy. From Sonny Payne's understated cymbal intro to "This Could Be the Start of Something Big" to the bluesier notes of "One Mint Julep," Basie and company sound like they're enjoying themselves, whether elegantly stretching out on "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" or "Moon River," or soaring into the air on the hotter numbers - one of the more. The last five songs here are drawn from Pop Goes the Basie, a 1965 album arranged and conducted by Billy Byers, and produced by Teddy Reig - the playing is as good as the companion work on numbers like "The Hucklebuck.

Count Basie by Bob Bernotas, published on October 16, 2015 at All About Jazz. Find more Building a Jazz Library articles. Through the '60s, the '70s, and into the '80s, the Basie band remained the definition of big band jazz. And even after his death on April 26, 1984, The Count Basie Orchestra continued to record and tour under the leadership of three of its most distinguished alumni: first Thad Jones, then Frank Foster, and, from 1995 to 2003, trombonist Grover Mitchell. Count Basie: April in Paris (Verve, 1955) After his brief small band hiatus during the early '50s, Basie returned to his favored format and picked up where he left off.
It was followed by This Time by Basie! Hits of the 50's and 60's, which reached the Top 20 and won the 1963 Grammy Award for Best Performance by an Orchestra for Dancing. By the end of the 1960s, Basie had returned to more of a jazz format. His album Standing Ovation earned a 1969 Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance by a Large Group or Soloist with Large Group (Eight or More), and in 1970, with Oliver Nelson as arranger/conductor, he recorded Afrique, an experimental, avant-garde album that earned a 1971 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Performance by a Big Band.
