Description

Count Basie Swings, Joe Williams Sings (Clef MG C-678) was the first album featuring Joe Williams (1918-1999) as the vocalist of the Count Basie orchestra. Basie and Williams first real encounter would take place in 1954, and from that year until 1961, Williams remained the singer for the band, rising to national prominence with Basie. Every Day I Have the Blues, taped in 1955, was one of his many hit recordings (it was added to the Grammy Hall of Fame for recordings of particular historical or qualitative importance in 1992). After leaving the Basie band, Williams had a successful career as a soloist at festivals, in clubs and on television. He and Basie remained on good terms and Joe regularly appeared with the Counts orchestra. Two tracks from the same sessions not included on the original LP and the complete Joe Williams album Sentimental and Melancholy (Roulette SR52066) have been added here as a bonus.
