Jazz Band honoring Count Basie

October 19, 2004

The Lindenwood University Jazz Band and Combo will present a Tribute Concert for the Kansas City King of Swing, William "Count" Basie at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov., 9 in the Cultural Center, 400 North Kingshighway.

The concert, "One for the Count" will be held on what would be Basie's 100th birthday. Several selections from the Count Basie Library will be performed including Magic Flea, Li'l Darlin, Jamie, Way Out Basie, and Robbin's Nest by Basie tenor saxophonist, Illinois Jacquet.

The success of the Count Basie Band helped pave the way for the continued development of Big Band Jazz. To showcase this musical evolution, the contemporary jazz styling of the Gordon Goodwin Big Band will also be featured. There's The Rub by Gordon Goodwin combines Funk, Rock and Jazz in a powerful chart that is sure to appeal to a wide audience.

For those who enjoy Latin Jazz the fiery Horn of Puente also by Goodwin will produce a sizzle from the infectious and saucy cha-cha and songa beats.

General admission is $3. Children under 12 are free. Tickets will be available at the door. For additional information contact Robert M. Carter at (636) 949-4506.
