The Count Basie Orchestra is a 16 to 18 piece big band, one of the most prominent jazz performing groups of the swing era, founded by Count Basie in 1935 and recording regularly from 1936. Despite a brief disbandment at the beginning of the 1950s, the band survived long past the Big Band era itself and the death of Basie in 1984. It continues as a 'ghost band'.

Given the paucity of Basie recordings from the '40s issued by his own label, the quality and content of this collection of 14 songs cut exclusively for radio in 1944 is scandalously good. his brief tenure with the Basie band, soloing on tenor sax. Jimmy Rushing and Thelma Carpenter are each featured on two numbers, and Carpenter's bluesy vocals, in particular, are a sultry delight. But the main thrust of this collection is the instrumental work, which, divorced from the three-minute limits of commercial recording, has lots of room for some hot improvisation.

Count Basie Plays, Joe Williams Sings Standards" (1956) are presented here on a superbly remastered double CD. April in Paris (1956). One of the staples in the Count Basie discography, April in Paris is one of those rare albums that makes its mark as an almost instant classic in the jazz pantheon. April in Paris represents the reassembly of the original Count Basie orchestra that define swing in the 1930s and 1940s. The title track has come to define elegance in orchestral jazz.
