Duke Ellington & Count Basie - First Time! The Count Meets the Duke (Sony Legacy)
I listened to this last night and again earlier this morning. It's really not a promising concept, putting two big bands together. But I think it comes off astonishingly well here. It's strange and fascinating to hear the overall and individual personalities of the bands in "conversation." The interplay between Basie's and Ellington's piano is especially wonderful. Or how about Jimmy Hamilton's clarinet contrasting with Frank Wess' flute?  And Paul Gonsalves doing his thing and then... Frank Foster!  The two bands are like sounds from different but somehow parallel universes -- like superheroes from the Marvel and DC worlds somehow meeting up and doing their thing together. I love it.

I'm not listening to the  original King of America record; it's the bonus disc that came with the Ryko reissue. It's an EP, a live recording of Elvis Costello & the Confederates from 1986.  Anyone who's a fan of guitarist James Burton (or EC) should hear it.

To me, Bill Evans' recordings for Verve are very "hit-or-miss," especially compared to the music he released on Riverside and Fantasy. That said, I think these two LPs are BE's strongest Verve releases -- and it's Shelly Manne's presence that lifts them.

I always thought Tunnel of Love was underrated.

I came to that conclusion today. Some of the 80s production gets in the way but the songs are pretty strong.  Can't remember what I thought of it on release. I do remember the gig on the tour was great

Yep. It's darn good. :tup

And I think Terry's next album, Pure Dynamite, is even better.
