William James "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904-April 26, 1984) is an American jazz
pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz
orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a
long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years,
creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing
the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their
sound, and others. WDR (West German Broadcasting Cologne) is the German public
broadcasting institution based in the Federal State of North Rhine- Westphalia

re-mastered by Dirk Franken, both formats include musician credits and liner
notes by journalist and radio host Karsten Mützelfeldt in English and German.
