Description:

Victor Goines and Joe Clark, conductors

Count Basie was one of the hippest musicians and bandleaders in jazz history. For a short period, he assembled a group of his finest contemporaries to perform as a small ensemble. The Jazz Small Ensembles open a swinging year with selections from Basie’s Kansas City 6 and Kansas City 7 ensembles.
