<h4>White Hot Stamper</h4><h3>Ellington-Basie<br><i>First Time - The Count Meets the Duke</i></h3>

White Hot Stamper

First Time - The Count Meets the Duke

  • You'll find Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on both sides of this stunning Six Eye Stereo pressing of First Time!
  • Three-dimensional space and ambience, rich Tubey Magic by the boatload - this 30th Street recording shows just how good Columbia's engineers were back then
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Ellington's elegance and unique voicings meet Basie's rollicking, blues-based Kansas City swing, and it works gloriously. The Duke and his band accentuate their swinging dance band side, while Basie and company have never sounded as suave and exotic as when playing Billy Strayhorn arrangements. Everyone has a good time, and that joy infuses this album from start to finish."
