Some light entertainment to start the working week off with ... pop songs with the instrumental tracks removed.

Goes to show that just as there's plenty of crap put out in every era and genre of pop music there's also examples of true talent from across the spectrum (imo).

There is a private recording of Duke Ellington playing one night in Brisbane whilst on route to Japan.....story goes The Duke bumps into John Coltrane at Darwin airport John on route back to USA from Japan....hmmmm or was in some Japanese airport.....

I use to speak to a trumpet player that played with The Duke a guy called Forrest Buchtel.....geee did he have many stories to tell during tenure with Duke and other greats during those smokey filled days of Jazz

Hear Hear, we can all understand "THUMP THUMP", I'd have all cars transmitting crap like that crushed!

Back to CB---most of the musos were using sheet music, even though they would have played these numbers time and time again, the MC told us they carry about 150 tunes with them on tour.

Concert had a great write up in todays West Australian. --utube ---one oclock jump smile.gif

On a serious note Richard Cook & Brian Morton authors of the Penguin guide to Jazz give a few C Basie recordings the 5 star accolade....from memory the early Decca recordings is one 5 michelin hatter........ that rests in my 7K+/- cd collection.....

Hi balance, saw Burlinson as well just recently--not bad.

Just got back from "town", which involves at least a 650KM round trip + bed. Don't really know how to describe the Count Basie band of today, save to say it is composed of many who were there decades ago, apart from age related absences the band is exactly as I remembered it in 1962 in the Albert Hall, London, with the great man himself as singer, todays singer certainly no Frank Sinatra but a superb female gospel/swing type singer who gave full throttle to her set pieces.

It goes without saying that this is the music of a long gone age of heroes, given that it was in its heyday just after WW2, since I can vaguely recall the Battle of Britain and DDay, its little wonder that the sound and swing bought back many memories for a packed house of very ageing swingers last night who experienced those very different times first hand. This concert was very polished and ultra professional as one would expect.

This was the first time CB has been to Australia for 40 years, due simply as explained to us, to the sheer cost and logistics involved given their potential audience is dwindling in numbers, but it was great to see so many "youngsters" in last nights audience.

Unless a sponsor can be found, it seems doubtfull if they will be back, since as an experiment this tour of Australia was crammed into just over 8 days, eg the band flew out of Sydney early yesterday morning, played for Perth last night and departed Australia 2am this morning, marvellous effort for so many very near "retirement" age musos.

Wouldn't have missed it for the world, together with the appearance of Burt Bacharach plus 70 musicians two months ago make for really great melodic/swing sound memories of times long since gone, musically regretfully.
