The Basically Basie Big Band - Basie Plays the Beatles
“Basie Plays The Beatles”, a two hour show featuring the Basically Basie Big Band playing Basie’s renditions of many of the hit songs of Lennon and McCartney plus a few of Basie’s hits mixed in for good measure.
Basie released three albums featuring these melodies and both Basie and Beatles fans will enjoy these hits from an amazing big band perspective.
One thing that made the Count Basie Orchestra an outstanding success was their adaptability to each new music style that came along and, in their 50 years in existence, there were lots of them! In the same year that the Count Basie Orchestra was voted the Best Big Band Jazz Orchestra, it was also voted the Best Big Band Dance Orchestra.
