Count Basie: From Kansas City to Harlem
with John Wriggle

Week 4 - Collaborations and All-Stars

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).

In our final week, we’ll look at the late period of Count Basie’s career, including his records with MGM-Verve and with Impulse! records. We’ll also look at his collaborations with singers like Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald, as well as his jam sessions for Pablo Records with figures like Count Basie and Louie Bellson.
