Full Show Friday: Count Basie Live At Carnegie Hall

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...Today, Count Basie!!!

Since we are at Jazzfest how about we post some classic jazz? Another question, you ready to swing?  The Count sure is.  Pro shot in the best concert hall in the country it don't get much better then this. How awesome is it that a major network aired this in 81? Keyrist today they don't even play music on Music Television or Music Television number 2!!!!

Enjoy him and his special guests from this CBS concert. You even get a history lesson before the playing...if you want to skip over that feel free, the show starts at the 25 minute mark:

Sweet Georgia Brown,
In a Mellow Tone,
There's Never Be Another You,
Booty's Blues,
Everyday I Have the Blues,
Goin' to Chicago,
Well All Right Okay You Win,
Basie Cup and Me,
April in Paris,
