Jazz icon, Count Basie, is one of the greatest bandleaders of all times. He 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
With evergreen writing including “One O’Clock Jump”, “Lil’ Darlin”, “Jump- in’ At The Woodside” and possibly his most famous “April in Paris”, Basie changed the jazz landscape and shaped mid-20th century popular music, duly earning the title “King of Swing”.
