Pure magic in the form of a Big Band


Everyone knows Count Basie, but many younger jazz fans may erroneously believe his music was just crowd-pleasing "big band stuff."

Crowd-pleasing, yes? That's what made jazz THE popular music of the 1930s-40s-50s.

But along with that, extraordinary depth.

Check out his piano playing and the soloists. The BBC justified its existence by capturing this one.

Please share your favorite videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
