Count Basie - The Classic Roulette Collection

Count Basie - The Classic Roulette Collection


Born William James Basie in Red Band, New Jersey, on 21st August 1904, ‘Count’ Basie began his musical journey by learning both drums and piano, and although he was more naturally a pianist, as a youth he preferred to play the drums. By age 15 though, he was focussing solely on the keyboards, discouraged from drumming by friend and future Duke Ellington drummer Sonny Greer, who knew Basie would never excel on the ‘skins’.
This 4 CD Collection focusses on The Count Basie Orchestra’s output for Roulette Records across 1958 and 1959, one of the busiest yet best regarded eras of Basie’s 50 year career. Featuring 8 original LPs, faithfully remastered to provide almost 5 hours of quite extraordinary music, this set will prove a delight for fans of the great man specifically, or of the golden age of jazz generally.
