Description:One of the best big bands of all time, The Count Basie Orchestra is hugely popular in Japan. The great band travels to the country almost every year, and a very special live recording took place in October of 2005. It marked their first recording under the new leadership of Bill Hughes. It also featured the great drummer Butch Miles and singer Melba Joyce.

The program is a crowd pleasing parade of hit songs, in which great composers and arrangers of the past are well represented: Freddie Green ("Corner Pocket"), Frank Foster ("Discommotion"), Frank Wess ("Segue in 'C'"), Ernie Wilkins ("Basie Power") and Neal Hefti ("Whirly-Bird"). The album's highlight, and my personal favorite, is clearly "Whirly-Bird" with Butch Miles' great drum solo.

This is a fun, exciting live album by the world's swingingest big band. Pure DSD recording by the experienced crew from Sony produced vivid, detailed and dynamic sound. If you have an SACD player, you're in for a treat!

Recorded live at Denryoku Hall, Sendai on October 28, 2005. Pure DSD Recording. This Hybrid SACD contains a stereo SACD layer, a five channel SACD layer and a stereo CD layer. It plays on any regular CD player as well as on SACD players.
