Product Description

 

THE REAL... COUNT BASIE is a definitive collection of the bandleader, jazz pianist and composer Count Basie. It features 58 classic tracks from his extensive catalogue. Jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer, Count Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others. Many musicians came to prominence under his direction, including the tenor saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, the guitarist Freddie Green, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison and singers Jimmy Rushing and Joe Williams.
