    My favorite jazz CD

    In my fairly small and only recently started collection this is "my favorite." To the ear of a non-musician there isn't a bad track in the bunch. I have read reviews of this CD by others. Some of those claim to favor "Live" performances of tracks of "Corner Pocket," "Shiny Stockings" and others, some of which I have listened to. I listen to music to hear the music not crowd noises. I can't imagine a better "Swing" CD.

    The best band in the land

    A true classic and maybe Basie's best. I never get tired of hearing the title cut. Two thumbs up for that great guitar work on
