The Basie band was home to several top-notch vocalists over the years, and this collection spotlights some of the best. Kicking off with Jimmy Rushing fronting the band on "I Can't Believe That You're in Love With Me," the set also features stellar outings from Helen Humes ("Don't Worry 'Bout Me," and "If I Could Be With You"), Lynne Sherman ("My Old Flame"), Earl Warren ("Moon Nocturne"), and Ann Moore ("Jivin' Joe Jackson"). A different side of the Basie band not often anthologized, this features stellar playing from greats like Lester Young, Buck Clayton, Al Killian, Dicky Wells, Freddy Green, Walter Page, Jo Jones, and of course, the Count himself.
