Count Basie Links General information, selected discography and bibliography, and links to three other sites. A one-page biography on the Kennedy Center's site (Washington DC). PBS's bio page (connected with Ken Burns's "Jazz") offers three downloadable "audio features" (and four clips) in its listing of the Count's works. This page, like the others on Wayne Bremser's "" site, uses interesting pop-up windows where you can browse Harlem's musical history by chronology, artist, or style. "The Loss of Count Basie," an appreciation by music critic Francis Davis, as originally published in The Atlantic Monthly following Basie's death of 1984. At Duke U, a one-page biography, a solid list of links, and cool pictures.
