William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. Missing lyrics by Count Basie? Know any other songs by Count Basie?

Count Basie this week. From his stint at Birdland in the Summer of 1956, and as broadcast as part of the weekly All-Star Parade of Jazz series on NBC Radio in July of 1956. At a time when Big-Bands had fallen largely out of favor in a live setting - due to changing tastes and the increasingly prohibitive economics of putting a Big Band on the road, Count Basie’s band was one of the few still flourishing and still high on the popularity charts. It was this freshness of approach that made the Basie band popular throughout the rest of the world around this time. Tours of the UK eventually became European tours and audiences, particularly in France where Basie was hailed and played sold-out venues everywhere, signified a new chapter and a whole new appreciation for his work. Count Basie’s influence on Jazz and early Rock n’ Roll can’t be underestimated.
