• Atomic Swing

    All the fission in the world couldn't create more energy than the band Basie put together at the height of the Atomic Age. His so-called Atomic Band of the late '50s made some of the hottest swing albums ever waxed; this compilation brings together 13 of the best dance tunes from their peak Roulette years, including arrangements by Neil Hefti, Frank Foster and Quincy Jones, plus vivacious versions of Moten Swing; Rock-A-Bye Basie , and more classics.
