Count Basie

William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother first taught him piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and improvised to accompany silent films at a local theatre in his town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935. more »

The song a robin sings
Through years of endless springs
The murmur of a brook at evening tides
That ripples through a nook where two lovers hide

That great symphonic theme
That's Stella by starlight
And not a dream
My heart and I agree
She's everything on this earth to me

That great symphonic theme
That's Stella by starlight
And not a dream
My heart and I agree
She's everything on this earth to me
