As Count Basie famously once said, “Our blues will make your blues go away.” The new album Basie Swings The Blues is a joyful mix of down-home, Delta Blues with the deep swing and sophistication that only the legendary Count Basie Orchestra can provide, and it features our very own School of Music director, Isrea Butler!

"I'm excited to be a part of this incredible album with this stellar group of musicians," Butler says of the experience, "Thanks to The Count Basie Orchestra! And thank you Count Basie!" 

The album is available for streaming now.
