    Original 3 Tone US Label. Frank Sinatra and Count Basie's second collaboration, It Might as Well Be Swing, was a more structured, swing-oriented set than Sinatra-Basie, and in many ways the superior album. The album consists of then-recently written songs, arranged as if they were swing numbers. The results work splendidly, not just because arranger/conductor Quincy Jones found the core of.

    A great concert by the Basie band in Sweden (not London!) showcasing the merits of all its respective members. Here we have some of the swinginist renditions recorded in the Basie repertoire. Recorded in the mid 's. Tunes included, such as 'How High the Moon' and 'Plymouth Rock' are reason alone to buy this CD! This stuff is pure power swing/5(7).
