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 »

Do I want to be with you
As the years come and go?
Only forever
If you care to know

Would I grant all your wishes
And be proud of the task
Only forever
If someone should ask

How long would it take me
To be near if you beckon?
Off hand I would figure
Less than a second

Do you think I'll remember
How you looked when you smile?
Only forever
That's puttin' it mild

How long would it take me
To be near if you beckon?
Off hand I would figure
Less than a second

Do you think I'll remember
How you looked when you smile?
Only forever
That's puttin' it mild
