Recorded in Nice, France in 1977.
The bad part about this ultra-budget CD ($5 list) is that, absent an intimate knowledge of personnel in the Basie band, you have to buy it and open it up to discover that it's from a 1977 gig in Nice, France, which is fairly late in the game. The good part is that the performance is not only a fine one, but the recording is fine too -- some of the balances are a little off (John Duke's bass is a tiny bit too prominent in the mix, but Butch Miles' drumming is right where it should be), but otherwise this is a superb representation of Basie's gloriously long Indian summer. The identical release to the out-of-print LRC label disc, but even lower-priced. ~ Bruce Eder
