Count Basie - Visionary.

Back on schedule this week with Count Basie and His Orchestra live from Birdland on January 9, 1956.

Basie during one of his transitional phases and always in top form. One of the great artists whose band you never got tired of hearing and whose music still sounds as fresh today as it was during this broadcast.
