Tom Gordon Basie 7

In the world of jazz royalty, Count Basie is king. From his Kansas City days in the 30s until his death in 1984, Basie’s trademark rhythm section pulse, contrasting brass soloists and his own spare, well-placed piano style were, for many, the very definition of the word “swing”. BBC Big Band drummer and arranger, Tom Gordon creates genuine excitement with his new all star seven-piece playing all Basie tunes in stylish new arrangements. Tom Gordon (drums) is joined by Enrico Tomasso (trumpet), Phil O’Malley (trombone), Ruaridh Pattison (saxophone), Andy Sharkey (bass), Euan Stevenson (piano) and Duncan Findlay (guitar).
