Description:Wonderful singer Keely Smith is best known for teaming up with her once-husband Louis Prima. They created a fever at the Sahara Hotel, Las Vegas during their heyday. On this album, Keely teams up with Count Basie and His Orchestra to sing up a storm. They shared the stage at Basin Street East in New York for the Christmas-New Year season of 1963/64, and their first show was aired by WNEW-FM. That electrifying performance earned them an invitation to the WNEW studio to record for the National Guard radio show.

This album consists of 16 tracks from that studio session. Eight tracks are by Keely and the Basie Band together, and the remaining tracks are by the Band alone. This album is a special treat because they never made a commercial recording together. The tracks were edited into four 15-minutes radio programs to aid the recruiting effort of the National Guard, and were aired in February, 1964.

Recorded December 1963 at WNEW Studio in NYC. Mono. DSD remastered. This Japanese paper sleeve edition released by SSJ Records in Japan in 2012.
