Diane Schuur Sings Basie
Nov

7:00 PM19:00

Diane Schuur Sings Basie

Diane Schuur (AKA “Deedles”) is a singer, pianist, and all-around entertainer with a big voice and an even bigger personality. Tonight she’ll be performing tunes from Diane Schuur & The Count Basie Orchestra, her classic album that topped the Billboard jazz charts for nearly a year and earned Schuur her second Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance.

With big arrangements, infectious riffs, and exuberant call and response, Basie’s music is a cornerstone jazz style that’s irresistible in live settings. Part of Basie’s lasting popularity also comes from his iconic series of Basie singers, a lineage in which Schuur follows Ella Fitzgerald by less than a decade.

Schuur’s charts are the real deal too, and tonight the Riley Mulherkar Big Band will be playing the authentic, original Count Basie arrangements that always brought the house down. Schuur has often worked with leaders of previous generations, like Ray Charles and Stan Getz, and she now joins a leader of tomorrow in this new multi-generational pairing. Mulherkar’s energetic young big band continues the Basie tradition of bringing a party to the concert hall, and the group is a perfect fit for a powerhouse vocalist like Schuur. Together they will bring Basie’s unstoppable swing to The Appel Room through songs such as “Everyday (I Have the Blues),” “Them There Eyes,” “You Can Have It,” and “Deedles’ Blues.”
