My Personal Story About Count Basie
Back to the Apple
Did any musician have more fun playing jazz than Count Basie? Listen to this song and you’ll know why his orchestra bridges big band swing with modern jazz. The Count plays effortlessly yet energetically, as if he had just arrived at a dull party, plopped down at the piano, and said, “Let’s get this joint jumpin’.” And suddenly everyone’s dancing. This song is featured on video collection of Count Basie.
