Count Basie

$45.00

William James “Count” Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra. In 1936, he 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.
The rich color and the geometric design of this Jay Austin Bowtie crafted from fine silk is sure to be one of your favorites. Shown here in the “Diamond” shape for more of a retro fashion-forward look.
