One of Basie's biggest regrets was never recording with Louis Armstrong, though they shared the same bill several times.

Frank Sinatra recorded for the first time with Basie on 1962's Sinatra-Basie.

Ella Fitzgerald made some memorable recordings with Basie, including the 1963 album Ella and Basie!.

Drummer Neil Peart of the Canadian rock band Rush recorded a version of "One O'Clock Jump" with the Buddy Rich Big Band, and has used it at the end of his drum solos on the 2002 Vapor Trails Tour and Rush's 30th Anniversary Tour.

The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra has won 17 Grammy Awards!

Did you know Spyro Gyra has performed over five thousand shows?

Jerry Lewis used "Blues in Hoss' Flat" from Basie's Chairman of the Board album, as the basis for his own "Chairman of the Board" routine in the movie The Errand Boy.
