While this is one of Count Basie's final albums, he's still in superb musical shape on this 1983 release. His band swings with the same kind of conviction and intimacy that made it famous during the Depression.
However there's a more contemporary feel to Basie's orchestra on 88 BASIE STREET; Cleveland Eaton plays all electric bass guitar, and saxophonist Eric Dixon and others contribute bop-inflected solos on "Contractor's Blues" and "The Blues Machine". To the end, Basie was dedicated to swing and the blues, never experimenting with rock or funk, as did contemporaries such as Buddy Rich and the next generation of big band icons such as Maynard Ferguson.
