Directed by trumpet player Paul Lacey Back To Basie features London session musicians and jazz soloists all dedicated to playing the music of Count Basie's second great orchestra of the 1950s and 1960s. Back To Basie captures the sound and spirit of Basie's legendary 'Swingin' Machine' with "uncanny accuracy and style".

Britain's Best Big Band: In addition to great reviews Back To Basie has won the Big Band category of the British Jazz Awards six times in the last seven years!
