: I don't know if anyone's posted this idea or mentioned previously. I thought it would be fantastic if Jon could produce an album of the "Sing A Song of Basie" from 1957 in the form of a collection of singers about sixteen or so they would emulate all the various sections of the Basie band brass, reeds, rhythm. I know that Jon, Annie and Dave did it with multi tracking but this would give a new slant on the original.
I don't know if there are any plans to record the entire album again, but the Jon's University of Toledo Vocalstra has been performing a number of these songs in their recent concerts.
