The legendary orchestra of William Bill “Count” Basie was born in the 1930s, right in the middle of the swing era. It wasn’t long before it found a place alongside the big bands of Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington. Red Bank-born pianist Basie knew how to make people dance and composed some of the greatest hits in the history of jazz music. Lester Young, Illinois Jacquet, Coleman Hawkins, Harry Edison, Buck Clayton, Frank Foster, Clark Terry, Freddie Green, Walter Page, “Papa” Jo Jones... all these iconic soloists helped craft the unique and powerful sound of the Count Basie Orchestra, which lives on beyond its founder. The Orchestra has championed this precious musical heritage ever since 1984 and it is now led by trumpet player Scotty Barnhart. For its 7thappearance on stage at Jazz à Vienne, CBO is inviting Patti Austin as a special guest. Famous for her duos with Michael Jackson (It’s The Falling In Love in “Off The Wall” released in 1979) and George Benson (Moody’s Mood For Love in “Give Me The Night”released in 1980), this world-renowned singer has proven her worth in jazz and in soul music. Austin is also a close friend of Quincy Jones, who made arrangements for the Count Basie Orchestra. Chances are she will bring the great standards once sung by Helen Humes and Jimmy Rushing back to life.

Line-up : Scotty Barnhart (dir), Frank Greene (t), Shawn Edmonds (t), Endre Rice (t), Brandon Lee (t), David Keim-lead (tb), Clarence Banks (tb), Mark Williams (tb), Alvin Walker (tb), David Glasser (s), Markus Howell (s), Doug Lawrence (s), Doug Miller (s), Josh Lee (s), Glen Pearson (p), Will Matthews (g), Trevor Ware (b), Robert Boone (dms), Patti Austin (v).
