Winner of more Grammy Awards® than any other big band in
history, the world-famous Count Basie Orchestra teams with
multi-Grammy®-nominated vocalist Nnenna Freelon to commemorate
the 100th anniversary of legendary bandleader Count Basie's
birth. This exciting collaboration celebrates the man and his
music with some of Basie’s best-known repertoire, tipping the
hat to vocalists who have performed with the orchestra — among
them Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan—and adding new material
designed and arranged for Freelon's unique vocal stylings,
including the only song Vaughan ever wrote.
