Count Basie and Orchestra On the Road Pablo 1980
This is a late-era Basie LP, recorded live apparently throughout a 1979 European tour. Features a host of brass players, Mickey Roker on drums, Keter Betts on bass and Freddie Green on guitar.
It's a good sounding recording as most Pablo releases are. It doesn't sound dated or dull. It's Basie bashing out classic tunes with a solid group of players.
