Count Basie And His Orchestra - Basie's Beat mp3 album

Basie's Beat is a 1967 album by Count Basie and his orchestra. The trombonist Richard Boone sings on two of the tracks, "Boone's Blues" and "I Got Rhythm". It's Only a Paper Moon" (Harold Arlen, . Yip" Harburg, Billy Rose) - 2:43. Squeeze Me" (Fats Waller, Clarence Williams) - 4:56. St. Louis Blues" (W. C. Handy) - 5:26. I Got Rhythm" (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin) - 2:37. Frankie and Johnny" (Traditional) - 3:43. Boone's Blues" (Richard Boone) - 2:50.

The Count and his orchestra tackle the music of the Fab Four, without any hint of condescension or lassitude. Kansas City" is the bluesiest number here, and the one with which the band is obviously the most comfortable - it's the only number here that could have appeared, as is, on any Basie album of the previous decade.

Despite a brief disbandment at the beginning of the 1950s, the band survived long past the Big Band era itself and the death of Basie in 1984. It continues as a 'ghost band'.
