Back to Basie pays tribute to all the great big bands of the 40's 50's and 60's. An 11 piece group comprised of some of Melbourne's best musicians. Founded by drummer Josh Koop and bassist Toshi Clinch who has studied directly from members of the Basie Big Band. The band will be performing a range of classic big band repertoire that has been re-orchestrated for this exciting smaller sized band. For their debut performance at Dizzies Jazz Club on the 1st of February will feature local vocalist Ben McGill. Performing a swinging night featuring the great vocal repertoire from the original Count Basie Bigband. It is a night not to be missed and we look forward to seeing you there.
