William Allen Basie passed away 25 years ago. But his band swings on. The Count Basie Orchestra put out a new CD last week called “Swinging, Singing, Playing.”
I had no idea the Basie brand – never mind the band – had that much life in it. The new album features top-notch guests such as Hank Jones, Geri Allen, Jon Hendricks, Nnenna Freelon and Janis Siegel.
