Count Basie Musicians

Count-Basie-Orchestra--Musicians

I am a fan of Big Band music and was recently assigned to take photographs of the Count Basie Orchestra performing. Needless to say, I was excited. Before the band went onstage I took the opportunity to go backstage and talk to a few of the members.

The 3 gentlemen pictured have been with the orchestra for many years. The gentleman on the left was also with the Duke Ellington orchestra at one time. I asked the gentleman on the right about the Basie Orchestra’s appearance in the Mel Brook’s film “Blazing Saddles” and it wasn’t Basie’s real band.

Before taking their photo, I asked for permission and it was granted. The photo was taken with available light, which was VERY little. I thought it best to take it “as is” and not waste the moment getting a flash and losing the opportunity.
