The Basie Band was known for their hard swinging style, coming straight out of the blues and into the jazz era. Compositions from his most prominent musicians and arrangers will have audiences tapping their toes and remembering why the Count Basie Orchestra was one of the most beloved bands of the 20th century. Heavy swing, amazing solos, and a happy, bluesy and feel good approach along with tight ensemble work were benchmarks of the Count Basie Band and are recreated masterfully here in this inaugural performance of the season.
