'Bennett's ability to straddlejazz and popular music was onehe shared with few others. Hemanaged to retain more of ajazz feel than either, and that'swhat Basie senses in him: akindred spirit who is devoted tothe not so very taxing businessof s(w)inging the song withminimum distraction.'PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ'Bennett's collaboration withthe older master marked oneof the highlights of his career.And for a very good reason:his charming and sophisticatedvoice, full of power andrelaxation, and the masterfulorchestra's immaculate swingwere made for one another.' Jazz Magazine. *****AMG:'The Roulette half of the two Bennett/Basie sessions is a band singer's paradise, withthe Basie band caught at a robust and swinging peak and Bennett never soundinghappier or looser in front of a microphone. Bennett's perennial pianist Ralph Sharontakes over the piano bench and does all the charts. Yet Sharon writes idiomatically forthe Count's style. Though not a jazz singer per se, the flavor of jazz is everywhere inBennett's voice, which in those days soared like a trumpet.' (Richard S. Ginell)
