. . . .AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: “APRIL IN PARIS” (COUNT BASIE AND HIS ORCHESTRA, 1957)

April is here!

Yes, springtime, flowers in bloom, morning and afternoon showers, and citrus trees with fruit to be that holds promise.

I have been a long time fan of the late and great William James “Count” Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) , also known simply as Count Basie, and what better way to herald in the month of April than to present one of his most famous compositions on an oldie but goodie.

So, without further ado, here is April in Paris by Count Basie and His Orchestra.

Enjoy!
