Born in Red Bank, NJ

The legacy continues with Red Bank bandleader royalty, Count Basie, who was known as “King of Big-Band Swing.” He changed the landscape of jazz by infusing it with blues and legitimized swing as mid-20th century music style. Basie’s early musical influence developed by imitating tunes then improvising piano accompaniment for silent films at the local movie theatre which ultimately became the Count Basie Theatre. Over the years, his orchestra defined the big band sound of the 30s and 40s with a litany of hits from his early 500 album-catalog. In all, Basie earned 9 Grammys and made history in 1958 as the first African American to receive the prestigious honor.
