Muze PNote Recording information: RCA Studios, Los Angeles, CA (05/06/1976).
Muze PNote Count Basie is best known for his big-band swing orchestras. But BASIE JAM 2 finds the legendary pianist "jamming" with an all-star octet. In truth, Basie's music has always been based around spontaneity and fun-the hallmarks of the jam session. Basie, the consummate entertainer, always encouraged playful, extended improvisations from his sidemen.
Muze PNote BASIE JAM 2 is consistent with the acclaimed bandleader's credo. Soloists Benny Carter, Al Grey, Clark Terry, and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis should require no formal introduction. These four jazz greats have developed highly personalized styles of improvisation, influencing an entire generation of players. Their keen and insightful improvisations-sometimes sensitive, sometimes bold-epitomize modern jazz at its best. All of the musicians heard on the distinctly blues-based BASIE JAM 2 render excellent performances. Standout tracks include "Mama Don't Wear No Drawers" and "Kansas City Line," and Basie and company swing with elegance and grit throughout.

Producer: Norman Granz

Engineer: Grover Helsley
