Count Basie Then As Now, Count s The King DVD

| DVD

Jazz great William Count Basie comes back to life in this rich documentary which traces the history of the pianist composer and bandleader over several decades. Filmmaker Gary Keys juxtaposes a roundtable discussion among old cats from the Count Basie Orchestra with recorded performances including a cameo appearance in Blazing Saddles. Archival clips and a gallery of portraits and snapshots show the ever-smiling face of a man as vivacious as the grooves he delivers and the players going at it all around him from Lester Young to Ella Fitzgerald.
