About

Steeped in the blues, Basie's straight-ahead swing was the style arrangers, like Frank Foster, Sammy Nestico and Neil Hefti, channelled when they arranged for his band. With the help of trumpeter Derrick Gardner, who spent some time in Basie's trumpet section, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra will explore music from those legendary composers, alongside other Basie staples.
