THE LEGENDARY COUNT BASIE ORCHESTRA
Directed by SCOTTY BARNHART
In the history of jazz, there is only one bandleader that has the distinction of having his orchestra still performing sold out concerts, all over the world, more than 30 years after his passing.
The Count Basie Orchestra has won every respected jazz poll in the world and won eighteen Grammy Awards. This great 20 member ensemble, including vocalist Carmen Bradford, is directed by Scotty Barnhart. The CBO continues the excellent history, started by Basie, of stomping and shouting the blues. They are the embodiment of swing, one of the most elegant and irresistible sounds that ever shook the western world.
“Purring one moment and roaring the next in trademark fashion.”
