  • Basie's beatles bag

    Its on mfp, its all Beatles tunes (or ones they covered), it by an old jazzer.

    And yet I see no mention of it on the vv site - so any one know much about this? I picked it up ages back but its been stuck at the back of the to be palyed pile for some reason.
    Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

    off the top of my head, not having the LP to hand, i seem to recall that this was a load of jizz. not much to shout about. just a personal opinion though many LPs, so little time!

      basie did do some tasty funky stuff towards the end of his career, on Pablo. there's one nice LP with a good bass and drums lick (if breaks float your boat) that turns into a reasonably tasty big band funk tune.
      Chops for show, groove for dough.

        it's not great, and the MFP is a reissue, the original has a nicer cover.

        Basie's 'Afrique' LP is very nice - arranged by Oliver Nelson.
