You know for certain that these guys are NOT screwing around from the very start of the opening track, "The Kid From Red Bank". In fact, you may often wonder whether they are often playing all of this crazy shit and breakneck tempos because they are literally on fire? It was immediately clear to me that I was now immersed in the virtual presence of true virtuosity. I'll admit that I'm a newbie when it comes to Count Basie, but I doubt it took me 30 seconds to figure out whether this album should be included on the "1001 Albums list". Ab-so-lutely. You don't have to be a jazz aficionado to tell that these guys are masters of their art. Do yourself a favor and stop whatever you're doing to listen to this. You won't regret it.Favorite Songs: "The Kid From Red Bank", "Double-O" and "Splanky".

A bombastic record! A huge sound, vibrant solos, and upbeat compositions make this record a standout of 1950s big band music. The music is boisterous, raucous even, yet obviously written and performed with such astounding precision.Interestingly enough, though the sheer volume and technical prowess of these recordings make the overall record absolutely unforgettable, the same qualities cause the individual songs of the record blend together, creating a record of little variety, with the lone exception of the gorgeous slow dance closer, "Lil' Darlin'."

Atomic is the right way to describe this album! Each song on The Atomic Mr. Basie feels explosive and full of energy, even on some of the slower moving tracks. The well orchestrated dynamics and large scale of Count Basie's orchestra make this album incredible. I highly recommend this if you are into big band jazz ensembles.

So I listened about four times to this album before writing these words. Yes, I actually really liked the big-band style jazzy fast-paced swing (really "big" band - 12 brass players) and I even danced a bit to it (or what I call dancing). I wouldn't even deny that I spent a few minutes trying to find a venue in London that would play this music live (I think I found one). However, even after numerous rotations, I wonder if I'd be able to remember this particular groove in the future and tell it apart from the others. That's usually my issue with jazz, but then again, you can say the same thing for ambient, right? Here, the compositions are arranged by Neal Hefti (who would later migrate over to Hollywood to compose themes for The Odd Couple and the Batman TV series). Plenty of tenor sax on here as well, courtesy of Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis (who also played with Armstrong). There's a really good chance that if I come across this LP in a used vinyl shop, I might as well just snatch it. So I'm on the 9th album and so far, percentage based, it's been a good trip! What'da'ya'know?
