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.
