Jazz on the Tube needs you

"Back to School" fundraiser

Our labor of love costs real money, about $1,500 a month in out-of-pocket expenses...

Basie's Band -1950

Advertisement

Count Basie and his incomparable band perform in 1950.

Personnel:

Count Basie, piano
Wardell Gray, tenor sax
Buddy DeFranco, clarinet
Clark Terry, trumpet
Freddie Green, guitar
Jimmy Lewis, bass
Gus Johnson, drums

Drastically affected by the declining popularity of large orchestras, Count Basie was forced to disband his famous ensemble during the late 1940s.

Not one to easily accept defeat Basie rebounded with a smaller group consisting of between six and nine pieces in 1950.
