Review: One can easily argue that the Basie band, from the moment of its emergence, did a great deal to set the course of American popular music as a whole. And now the band continues as a legacy institution, full of good vibes and a solid professional ethic. Their latest disc mixes it up between older Basie staples & fairly surprising, at times hard-to-recognize arrangements of more modern pop and R&B. The guests bring tons of personality to the affair, as well.
