Three decades after the fact, people looking at releases like This Time by Basie would tend to dismiss it as pandering, Count Basie doing a "pops"-type outing -- the cheesy cover art even emphasized the songs over Basie and his band.
Nothing could be further from the truth, however -- this song release reveals a wonderful body of work, and deserves to be better known. For starters, This Time by Basie swings, smooth and easy but taut, or hot and heavy. From Sonny Payne 's understated cymbal intro to "This Could Be the Start of Something Big" to the bluesier notes of "One Mint Julep," Basie and company sound like they're enjoying themselves, whether elegantly stretching out on "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" or "Moon River," or soaring into the air on the hotter numbers -- one of the more surprising covers here is "Walk Don't Run," which even works in a big-band arrangement.
The last five songs here are drawn from Pop Goes the Basiea album arranged and conducted by Billy Byersand produced by Teddy Reig -- the playing is as good as the companion work on numbers like "The Hucklebuck. The remixing from the original three-track studio masters has yielded an especially clean sound with vivid stereo separation, enhancing the solos check out Davis ' on "At Long Last Love" and the overall ensemble.
