Diane Schuur & the Count Basie Orchestra

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This CD features a logical combination: singer Diane Schuur with the Count Basie big band. In what would be longtime rhythm guitarist Freddie Green's final performance, Schuur and the Basie ghost band under the direction of Frank Foster perform material that includes her standards such as "Deedles' Blues" and "Climbing Higher Mountains", Dave Brubeck's "Travlin' Blues" and the Joe Williams-associated "Everyday I Have The Blues." Unfortunately, the Basie band is mostly used in accompaniment without any significant solos, but Schuur sounds quite comfortable in this format and her voice is in prime form.
