Count Basie is probably my favourite big band leader and yesterday, whilst wearing one of my other hats I had the pleasure of conducting the Sandown and Shanklin Military band in an arrangement of Count Basie tunes called Count Basie Salute, arranged by John Higgins.

It comprises ‘April in Paris, ‘Lil Darling’ and Jumping at the Woodside.

This was our last Christmas concert for this year at All Saints Church in Freshwater and the video is posted on the bands facebook page, with lots of others from this and previous concerts.

The Videographer is our very own Les Gladdis who has kindly given me permission to share this with you.

Hope you enjoy it.
