Afrique by Count Basie on Flying Dutchman. Count Basie came to prominence in the late 1930s when his Orchestra was first recorded by John Hammond in Kansas City. Except for a short period in the early 50s, the band existed until Basie’s death in the mid-1980s. Bob Thiele had been a fan of Basie since the 30s and took the opportunity to make a new album with him when it presented itself  . Given tunes written by Oliver Nelson, Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders and Gabor Szabo, with arrangements by Nelson, he proved himself capable of being as modern as any player.

In late 1970, more than 35 years into his career as a bandleader, Count Basie, working with producer Bob Thiele and axman Oliver Nelson, went into the studio and cut this album of big band blues built on recent compositions - and they made it sound cutting-edge and as urgent as anything the man had ever turned his talent toward. Basie and company got a Grammy nomination for their trouble on this, their most modern recording (right down to the use of electric bass on half the cuts), but never went down this road again
