Brush with greatness
Count Basie Orchestra
I met with the Count Basie Orchestra at Anthology in San Diego. They are from the swing era and have played with greats such as Frank Sinatra & Ella Fitzgerald.
Listen to their theme song "One O'Clock Jump". This song is used to close each of their concerts for nearly half a century and an interview on what inspires them.
Check out the video - They are a delight!
