They’ve played for kings and queens, appeared in movies and on TV and collected 18 Grammy awards. Under FSU Professor Scotty Barnhart’s baton and celebrating 85 years, the Count Basie Orchestra still swings and shouts the blues with precision, maintaining their reign as “the most explosive force in jazz.”

Meticulous musicianship, tight comradeship, buoyant swing. – Downbeat Magazine
