BBC Big Band
Jamie Davis vocalist

Join the BBC Big Band as they celebrate the music of Count Basie with a complete performance of the music from his best-selling album The Atomic Mr Basie.

Released in 1957, this has been widely acknowledged as the pinnacle of Bill Basie’s many achievements. The featured titles, all composed by Neal Hefti, include The Kid from Red Bank, Splanky, Fantail and Li’l Darlin’.

This concert also features former Count Basie Orchestra singer Jamie Davis whose soulful voice harks back to the days of singing legends Joe Williams and Jimmy Rushing.

BBC Big Band is a Town Hall Associate Artist.
