The music of Count Basie and Joe Williams

This year’s Wellington Jazz Festival set centres around the landmark 1955 album Count Basie Swings, Joe Williams Sings, which features the legendary Count Basie Big Band and famous tunes including “Every Day I have the Blues” and “Please Send Me Someone to Love.” The RNZAF Jazz Orchestra will be joined by local swinging serenader Eugene Wolfin to help bring this famous Basie album to life.
