Hi guys, I went old-school and bought an old LP "Basie and Friends". I just put it on the turntable for the first time and this stuff just kills me. I don't like Basie's big band stuff as much as his small combo group playing. Ray Brown, NHOP, John Heard, all doing bass duty on one song or another. What more can you ask for? I love this small group type of swing. Brushes, guitar, bass, and piano. "Count Basie and the Kansas City 7" was excellent to, as was the Jazz Casual DVD with Count Basie as that was a small group type playing. Anyways, can you guys give me any other recommendations to keep an eye out for? Doesn't have to be Basie, but I'd like to hear more in this vein. Thanks. I can die listening to this stuff.
