About THE COUNT BASIE ORCHESTRA AND DIANE SCHUUR
Winner of 18 Grammy Awards, The Count Basie Orchestra has appeared in several movies and television shows and at every major jazz festival in the world. Renowned worldwide, the orchestra has performed for kings, queens and other royalty.
“[Diane Schuur's] voice is impressive in its size, range and brightness … she uses her twirling vibrato as rhythmic punctuation. After drawing out a note, she dispenses that vibrato like the cherry on a sundae.”
– Stephen Holden, New York Times
