Basie Straight Ahead - A Tribute to the Count
Chanhassen Dinner Theatre
501 W 78th St.
Chanhassen, MN 55317

The JazzMN Orchestra pays tribute to Count Basie on Monday, May 21st at 7:30 pm at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater with guest vocalist Charmin Michelle. The distinctive “Basie Sound” captivated audiences around the world for nearly 50 years, and launched careers of legendary artists and composers such as Lester Young, Billie Holiday, Frank Foster, Quincy Jones, Thad Jones, Sammy Nestico, and Billy Byers (just to name a few). Basie’s Kansas City style of swing would often start with simple jazz “riffs” that would grow into roarin’ shout choruses that brought the house down.
