Joe Newman Quintet At Count Basie's (EP)
by Joe Newman
Released: Apr 2005
Nobody played trumpet like Joe Newman. Recorded right after he left the Count Basie fold for good, Newman proves he can stand tall with young lions like Oliver Nelson (tenor sax) and Ed Shaughnessy (drums). This is another one of those sizzling jam sessions where you try and figure out what exactly the differences between swing and bop are.
