A historical exploration of the world of legendary jazz pianist Count Basie beginning with his roots as the kid from Red Bank, New Jersey, through his Kansas City years, and focusing on his first legendary swing era big band spanning over a decade from the mid-1930s through the late-1940s. While an emphasis will be placed on Basie both in and out of context, the class will also examine his key collaborators of this period including Lester Young, Walter Page, Jo Jones, Eddie Durham, Bennie Moten, and many others.
