It also frequently featured stars of Motown such as The Supremes, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and The Jackson 5.

    William James Count Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother taught him to play the piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and to improvise accompaniment for silent films at a local movie theater in his home town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16 years old, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935.
    In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, the Count Basie 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. Basie's theme songs were One O'Clock Jump, developed in 1935 in the early days of his band, and later April in Paris.

  • Count Basie Orchestra - When My Dream Boat Comes Home - 1937

    Count Basie Orchestra with Jimmy Rushing. Recorded from a July 1937 live Radio Broadcast from the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. The tenor solo behind singer Jimmy Rushing is from Herschel Evans (starts around 01:30).

  • Freddie Green poly-rhythms! Count Basie Broadcast August 1938

    6:02

    Check out Freddie Green's poly-rhythms! 00:42 & 4:12. Really unusual, brilliant rhythm playing from Freddie Green (guitar) & Walter Page (bass) Jo Jones (drums).

    From The Savory Collection, Mosaic Records. Tunes: Every Tub and I Ain't Got Nobody. Broadcast from the Famous Door. NYC, August 1938.



    The Basie rhythm section is legendary - maybe the first truly great one. Anyone familiar with Freddie Green's playing, and this rhythm section in general will appreciate how unusual and adventurous the approach in these tunes is. Before hearing these recently-discovered tracks (thanks Mosaic for releasing them!), I had never heard anything like this in Freddie Green's 50 years of recording with the Basie band. Hearing something new like this from 1938 is the musical equivalent of finding buried treasure...



    And of course, there's beautiful solo work from Lester Young, Sweets Edison, Basie and others. Jimmy Rushing is heard on vocals.
