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 »

Please, don't talk about me when I'm gone
Oh, honey, though our friendship ceases from now on
And, listen, if you can't say anything real nice
It's better not to talk at all is my advice

We're parting--you go your way, I'll go mine
It's best that we do
Here's a kiss; I hope that this brings lots of luck to you
Oh, makes no difference how I carry on
Remember, please, don't talk about me when I'm gone

We're parting--you go your way, I'll go mine
It's best that we do
Here's a kiss; I hope that this brings lots of luck to you
Makes no difference how I carry on
Remember, please, don't talk about me
Please, don't talk about me
Please, don't talk about me when I'm gone
