Dance Along with Basie is an album released by pianist, composer and bandleader Count Basie featuring tracks recorded in late 1959, with the great lead trumpeter Snooky Young, and originally released on the Roulette label. Ralph Gleason noted that as a pop LP this is five-star right off; curiously enough, people frequently forget that bands such as this one are great dance bands at one and the same time they are great jazz bands. This album, for instance, should put most of the studio swing-band efforts to shame.
