[JPL] Ray/Basie Band

The band is amazing! Bill Hughes, who was the bass trombone man in the later 
band for Basie is a good steward, and it was nice to see Butch Miles back - 
he's my choice right after Sonny Payne, Basie wise. Joey DeFrancesco is a 
nice touch also. I'll probably spotlight this and provide some early Ray and 
Atomic Basie  just for fun -  and of course Kevin Mahogany's "We Can Fix It 
In The Mix" from 1997.
