Description

For more than 60 years, the Count Basie Orchestra has been the standard by which other big bands have been judged.

Joined by Marlena Shaw, one of the most charismatic and versatile vocalists on the scene today, this American institution is sure to blow the roof off with their signature sound blending jazz and swing.

There is no band like the Count Basie Orchestra, which has garnered every respected jazz poll in the world, accumulated awards — 17 Grammys in all — and continues to tour the world.
