Founded in 1935, The Count Basie Orchestra is among the most celebrated big bands of all time, collaborating with Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles and other giants and garnering 18 Grammy Awards and 20 DownBeat and JazzTimes Readers and Critics Poll Awards. Long regarded as one of contemporary jazz’s premier vocalists, Grammy winner Diane Schuur is as eclectic as she is brilliant, exploring just about every corner of the 20th-century musical landscape. New York Voices‘ Grammy-winning a cappella vocal stylings and inspired arrangements are rooted in jazz, R&B, classical, pop and Brazilian music. This performance is part of the Carolina Jazz Festival.
