Now's the Time: The Count Basie Orchestra
It's absolutely shocking that The Count Basie Orchestra hasn't performed in the Kansas City area since a 2007 concert at the Folly Theater. The embedded static shot filmed in Japan seven months ago provides insights into the current state of the ensemble. The video was uploaded by the Kansas City-based Will Matthews, the current guitarist for the orchestra. The big band will appear at Yardley Hall at Johnson County Community College on Sunday, April 27.
