Summary

A masterful bandleader, William Basie—known as Count Basie—assembled many of America's top musicians into an orchestra that popularized jazz for nearly half a century. He had an extraordinary talent for playing the piano in a stripped down style that heightened his group's sound and complemented his bandmates. Count Basie profiles a man who was called a genius for his ability to stimulate a jazz orchestra.
