The Board of Directors Review

by William Ruhlmann

This is a follow-up to the first Mills/Basie collaboration, The Board of Directors, a commercial success recorded less than eight months earlier. It is in the same vein, mixing a few of each artist's signature tunes ("The Glow-Worm" for the Mills Brothers, "Every Day" for Count Basie) with recent pop chart entries like "Gentle on My Mind" and "Sunny." The former fare better than the latter, but the matching exuberance of the singers and instrumentalists makes for another entertaining disc.
