Count Basie - Basie Meets Bond
Year: 1965
Total time: 40:35
Audio CD (April 23, 2002)
Format: Original recording remastered
Label: Blue Note Records
Bitrate: 320 kbps

Count Basie was one of the greatest musicians of all time. His classic recordings of "April In Paris", "Corner Pocket" and "One O'Clock Jump" became classics. Most of his frontmen went on to have amazing careers of their own, such as the grandaddy of guitarists, Freddy Green, and musicians Frank Foster and Quincy Jones, who would later become pretty good leaders themselves (it's staggering to know the ageless Quincy Jones got his break with Basie's band so many years ago) Basie, Count Basie, meets Bond, James Bond in this swingin' collection of themes from the immortal James Bond movies of the 60's. Arranged in the high swingin'latter-day style that made Basie the beloved man he was by Basie camp stalwart Chico O'Farrill and George "The Fox" Williams, this 1965 album has been out of print for too long. Commercial as it may seem, this collection of songs swings hard. It can't be said that Basie wasn't up for trying "new" things; a year later he would record the even more commercial "Basie's Beatle Bag", a collection of tunes by the Fab Four, with equally unbelievably great results) The standouts here (in my humble opinion) are the lusty GIRL TROUBLE and the ballad type - turned - free-for-all FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, both turned inside out by Basie and the boys and stamped with that unmistakeable 60's Basie sound. As always, Basie meanders through the charts with his few frugal piano "plinks & plunks" but never was so much conveyed with so little. GOLDFINGER, probably the best known piece on this side, is a brassy and bold statement that removes any doubts that this collection isn't worth its weight in gold, if only from a nostalgic standpoint.
A must for Basie and Bond fans alike! ~ Giovanni

This campy LP from the 1960s features the Count Basie Orchestra playing ten themes from four early James Bond movies, with arrangements by either Chico O'Farrill or George Williams. While it seems doubtful that Basie added any of this music to his regular band repertoire, his band does its best to do justice to the arrangements. The somewhat monotonous "007" is converted into a dramatic calypso, while "The Golden Horn" is straight-ahead swing and might surprise someone who hadn't seen the film From Russia With Love. But most Basie fans will want to know how the band handled the best-known themes. "Goldfinger" is given a low-key but swinging treatment that has a fine solo by Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, while the foot-patting treatment of "Thunderball" focuses on Marshall Royal's soulful alto sax and a typically sparse Basie solo. This long out of print record is unlikely to resurface as a CD reissue and it can be safely bypassed by most jazz fans, but Basie devotees who have a fondness for the earliest James Bond films (Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, and Thunderball) might find this surprising LP worth the investment -- if they can only locate a copy. ~ Ken Dryden, AMG
