COUNT BASIE
Signed b/w Mutoscope picture postcard of Count Basie sitting at a piano in a tux
Inscribed picture postcard signed "to Gil/Count Basie". B/w, 3¼x5¼ card, one surface. Captioned: "Count Basie/Courtesy of Music Corporation of America/A Mutoscope Card/Made in USA". Postcard by Mutoscope. Blank on message side. Basie (1904-1984, born William Basie in Red Bank, New Jersey) was one of the best-loved of all bandleaders. His unique piano style led him to be called one of the leaders of swing music, and he is credited with introducing blues to mainstream audiences through his polished versions of blues rhythms. The great interpreter of swing formed his own band in 1935, which placed over 30 recordings in the Top 40 from 1937 to 1968 and showcased such legendary performers as Billie Holiday and saxophonist Lester Young. He also wrote One O'Clock Jump, now a jazz standard. Basie appeared in films from 1938 to 1964. His last was a memorable scene with his orchestra in Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles (1974). The Count Basie Orchestra still tours today, playing the famous arrangements that Basie pioneered. Lightly toned. Errors in negative were reproduced in photo. Postcard was cut off-center and shows thin strip of another image at bottom edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
