Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra: Back to Basie, October 22
Back to Basie with the WJO and Count Basie Band leader Scotty Barnheart
"If you play a tune and a person don't tap their feet, don't play the tune" (William "Count" Basie)
The Count Basie Big Band lived by their leader's famous adage. Whether working all night, every night at the Reno Club in Kansas City or swingin' hard at Battle of the Bands in New York City, they had their audience up and dancing. WJO swings into the season with a celebration of the iconic band leader and music guaranteed to keep toes tapping. To help us out, Grammy Award winning trumpeter and Basie Band leader Scotty Barnhart is our featured guest.
