The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra
Time Out says
Just try to stop your toes from tapping and your head from nodding when this celebrated jazz orchestra takes over Birdland for five nights. Originally formed in 1935 by William J. "Count" Basie, the "swingingest band in all the land" is still going strong decades after the legendary band leader's death. Picking up the unmistakable Kansas City swing tradition, is celebrated jazz trumpeter and current orchestra director Scotty Barnhart.
