BASIE Count

BASIE COUNT WILLIAM (P-ORG-LEAD)

Red Bank, New Jersey. 21/8/1904. – Los Angeles, 26/4/1984.

Ha studiato musica con sua madre e Fats Waller. Dopo aver lavorato come pianista nelle sale cinematografiche si è trasferito a Kansas City dove ha trovato lavoro nelle orchestre di Walter Page e di Bennie Moten. Nel 1935 ha organizzato una sua orchestra sui resti di quella di Moten, con la quale è andato in onda tutte le sere da una stazione radio di Kansas City. Una sera dalla radio della sua auto il celebre impresario John Hammond lo ha ascoltato e ne è rimasto profondamente colpito. Hammond, che aveva già lanciato Benny Goodman e Billie Holiday, gli procurò una vantaggiosa scrittura al Savoy Ballroom di New York. Il successo ottenuto in tale rinomata sala di New York, darà inizio alla escalation che lo ha portato ad essere il direttore di una delle più grandi orchestre della storia del jazz. Ha partecipato al famoso concerto con Benny Goodman alla Carnegie Hall nel 1940. Il successo della sua orchestra è continuato ininterrotto negli anni, per l’eccezionale valore e personalità dei suoi componenti ma soprattutto per la grande capacità di Basie nel saper fondere le energie dei suoi orchestrali. La riprova e che, dopo la sua morte, ”gli alunni” con le stesse partiture e diretti ottimamente da ex collaboratori di Basie, anche riuscendo ad avere lo stesso feeling con il pubblico, non hanno raggiunto i risultati ottenuti quando “Count” la dirigeva dal suo pianoforte. Ha inciso anche sotto lo pseudonimo di Prince Charming.
