This Time By Basie by Count Basie
Released: Jan 1963
Label: Reprise
One of Basie's platters for Sinatra's Reprise label, This Time features the Count's famous "atomic" period sound, with deft arrangements by Quincy Jones and some fine solo work by Frank Foster, Marshall Royal, and "Lockjaw" Davis. "I Can't Stop Loving You" went on to win a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental, but it's actually the weakest track of this ace session.
