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 »

Goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you,
Goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you,
There's nothin' in Chicago that a mucky woman can do!

When you see me comin', raise your window high,
When you see me comin', raise your window high,
When you see me passin' baby, hang your head and cry!

Hurry down sunshine, see what tomorrow brings,
Hurry down sunshine, see what tomorrow brings,
The sun went down, tomorrow brought us rain!

You're so mean and evil, you do things you ought not do,
You're so mean and evil, you do things you ought not do,
You've got my brand of honey, just don't have to put up with you!
