About this release

Fresh Sound Records (Spain)

This CD is special for several reasons. The first part is a session that Count Basie produced in 1957 for "Lockjaw" with another Basie alumnus, the great trumpeter Joe Newman. What makes this album unusually interesting is that Basie plays the piano while Shirley Scott plays the organ. To complete this CD, a special compilation has been added eight little-known recordings of tunes when Basie was featuring "Lockjaw" in his big band (1952-1957) which show that the pair were simply destined for each other musically in one of the historic comings-together in jazz.

Thanks to kazuhiro for the addition and snobb for the updates
