Directed by trumpet-player Paul Lacey, Back To Basie features London session musicians and jazz soloists all dedicated to the music of Count Basie’s legendary ‘Swingin’ Machine’ - straight ahead swing played with dynamics, good humour, and a large dose of the blues!
Launched in 2001, Back To Basie have since been presenting concerts with “accuracy and style” throughout Britain and Europe to great reviews.
Back To Basie has been voted Best Big Band in the British Jazz Awards six times - in seven years!
Great show again. Thank you Paul and the boys. Would love to hear solo by Richard on Bass Trombone. Please hurry back to Ipswich
Want to stay in touch with the New Wolsey Theatre? Of course you do!
