About the event

The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra, directed by veteran trumpeter Scotty Barnhart, features a peerless array of 18 instrumentalists, together with special guest vocalist, the remarkable Carmen Bradford, who was hired by Basie himself. This tour will feature the Orchestra’s tribute to the great Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. The Basie Band had a strong history with both artists and their reverence for them will shine through in this homage to these two greats of jazz. From Billie Holiday to Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra to Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughan to Ella Fitzgerald, the Count Basie Orchestra has provided the supremely distinctive sound and swing behind some of the greatest singers of the modern age.
