This edition contains the superb 1962 LP Count Basie and the Kansas City 7 (Impulse AS15) in its entirety. It showcases Basie on piano and organ leading a septet featuring some of the best components of his orchestra. Also included here is the song “Trey of Heart”, which complete the session. It first appeared on the compilation album The Definitive Jazz Scene Vol.1 (Impulse AS99). To complete this release, the rare and long-unavailable LP, Memories Ad-Lib (Roulette SR52021). Recorded in 1958, the album presents Basie exclusively on organ, this time leading a quintet with vocalist Joe Williams. Harry “Sweets” Edison joins the band as a guest soloist on “If I Could Be With You”. This release contains new updated liner notes, as well as the original ones for both LPs, and the complete Down Beat review for our main album.
