Over the years, Basie was pleasingly consistent; nonetheless, some of his recordings are more essential than others, and Swinging the Blues: tends to favor the more essential offerings from his early period. This minute collection, which was assembled by veteran jazz critic Scott Yanow for Allegro's Jazz Legends imprint, isn't the last word on early, pre-'40s Basie. But if Swinging the Blues isn't quite the ideal summation of pre-'40s Basieit's still an excellent, consistently rewarding CD.
Like other discs on Jazz Legends, Man - Count Basie - Swinging The Blues the Blues offers the material in chronological order; the first two selections 's "Somebody Stole My Gal" and 's "Moten Swing" are from a time when Basie was still a sideman in Moten 's Kansas City Orchestra and had yet to form his own big band. But most of the CD is devoted to Basie 's work as a leader, and despite the absence of a few essential '30s recordings, Swinging the Blues paints a highly attractive picture of the Count during that period.
