We salute the date of birth of pianist Nat Pierce this set. He was born on July 16th. Pierce had a long and distinguished career but also low profile. He was a great freelance arranger, a swinging pianist, and an occasional leader of bands of his own. Two of his most famous projects took place in 1957 — writing the arrangements for The Sound of Jazz television show, and playing piano with the Basie rhythm section on the first ear-opening Lambert, Hendricks & Ross album Sing a Song of Basie. In fact Pierce was so adept at playing piano in the Basie style he even subbed for the Count on a number of occasions. Nat Pierce piano on the first three tracks here and then as arranger of the last recording this set
