Count Basie: Swinging at His Best
A member of jazz royalty receives his just due in this deservedly admiring retrospective of Count Basie's musical legacy. Tracing his roots from unknown session man to his status as one of the most celebrated musicians of the genre, this documentary captures the mood of the decade (the 1930s) during which Basie zoomed to the top -- and also harkens back to a time when good, soul-satisfying music was synonymous with Basie's name.
