Count Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984; birth name William James Basie) was an American jazz pianist and composer. Today he credited as one of the most influential jazz musicians of his time. He achieved mainstream success as a founder member of jazz big band, Count Basie Orchestra, which collaborated with various famous artists such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. He also helped to rose to fame other musicians: tenor saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison and vocalists Jimmy Rushing and Joe Williams.
