Pianist, composer, and band leader, Count (William) Basie was one of the most popular figures in the “swing” era of jazz. His spare, fluent piano style and loose, informal arrangements earned him a permanent place in jazz history. The “bop” and “cool” styles of jazz were greatly influenced by his rhythmic styling.
 
Basie studied music with his parents as a child and began his career in vaudeville acts around New York City. However, he developed his band style in Kansas City, Missouri, as a member of Bennie Moten’s orchestra in the 1930s. In 1935 he formed his own band, which caught the attention of jazz critic John Hammond, who arranged for Basie to play in New York City. By 1939 the Count Basie Orchestra was world famous. Two of his most popular songs were “One O’Clock Jump” and “Jumpin’ at the Woodside.”
 
Basie’s internationally renowned rhythm section included percussionist Jo Jones, bassist Walter Page, and guitarist Freddie Jones. This four-man rhythm section set unsurpassed standards of vigor and precision, creating an environment in which soloists thrived. Important soloists included saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry Edison, and trombonist Dickie Wells.
