Featuring Count Basie Orchestra

Jazz icon Count Basie was born William James Basie on Aug. 21, 1904 in Red Bank, New Jersey. Count Basie was the arbiter of the big-band swing sound and his unique style of fusing blues and jazz established swing as a predominant music style. Basie changed the jazz landscape and shaped mid-20th century popular music, duly earning the title “King of Swing” because he made the world want to dance.
