A Basie Vocal Celebration

Felicitations to all concerned in the creation of this marvellous album! What a great endeavour! And what a treat! Bravo to all!” Jon HENDRICKS, author of the lyrics, founder of the Hendricks-Lambert-Ross Trio “Claude Tissendier offers a new reading of the legendary repertoire of Count Basie; adapted for song, the music was made immortal by Jon Hendricks with Dave Lambert & Annie Ross, and also by Ella Fitzgerald. Not forgetting, of course, Mimi Perrin and the Double Six groups who, following the international success of the Hendricks, Lambert & Ross Trio’s Sing a Song of Basie, appeared all over the world singing the exceptional arrangements of Quincy Jones. Claude Tissendier formed an Octet that has the power of a big band; with them, he pays tribute to Basie, and to the arrangers who helped create his legend: Neal Hefti, Jon Hendricks – and Claude Nougaro! His orchestra is a jewel-box for an exceptional vocal duo: Michele Hendricks – Jon’s daughter – and Marc Thomas.” Patrick FREMEAUX, l’EditeurClaude Tissendier “Countissimo” : Nicolas Peslier (g.) – Sylvain Glevarec (dms) – Gilles Berthenet (tp) – FranCois Penot (t.sax) – Olivier Defaÿs (b.sax)Jean-Pierre Rebillard (cb) – Claude Tissendier (cl./lead) – Michele Hendricks & Marc Thomas : (voc.) – Jacques Schneck (p.)1.
