Count Basie Orchestra
Admission $29.00 - $39.00
Winner of 17 Grammy Awards, the Count Basie Orchestra embodies the spirit of the freewheeling 1930s band of Kansas City. Featured singer Carmen Bradford was recruited by Count Basie and sang with the orchestra from 1982 to 1990. The 19-piece orchestra has a trove of lush charts which it executes flawlessly. The ensemble can sound “exactly” as it did 50 years ago or swing “like a monster,” so talented and multifaceted are its suburb musicians.
