Jazz lovers over every age are sure to be delighted by Jazz For Young People’s latest family concert, “Who Is Count Basie?” We want you and your family to experience the wonder of a Jazz For Young People show, so we are giving away a family 4-pack of tickets to a performance of “Who Is Count Basie” on November 5 at Rose Theater at 1pm.
During the Depression, piano player and bandleader William “Count” Basie lifted America’s spirits with his elegant and irresistible swing music. Establishing 4/4 swing as a primary jazz style, Count Basie led one of the greatest big bands of all time, featuring the hard-swinging All-American Rhythm Section, iconic soloists, and a communal feeling that kept the dance floor moving all night. In this hour-long narrated concert featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, crowd participation, and engaging storytelling by Wynton Marsalis, families will learn about Basie’s exciting career and infectious music.
