The Count Basie Orchestra is a 16 to 18 piece big band, one of the most prominent jazz performing groups of the swing era, founded by Count Basie in 1935 and recording regularly from 1936. Despite a brief disbandment at the beginning of the 1950s, the band survived long past the Big Band era itself and the death of Basie in 1984. It continues as a 'ghost band'.

William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904– April 26, 1984) was a jazz pianist, organist, composer, and bandleader. As a pianist, he had a distinctive and influential style (the song title "Splanky" is an onomatopoetic reference to the sound of his playing), equally at home in the barrelhouse and the concert hall. Willie "The Lion" Smith, James P. Johnson, and Fats Waller were among his influences.

Count Basie: An Introduction to Count Basie: His Best Recordings, 1936-1944 (Best of Jazz, 1996) Basie's first band produced a string of jazz classics: "One O'clock Jump," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," "Swingin' the Blues," "Down for Double," etc. Many were collectively worked out "head arrangements," while others were crafted by such gifted writers as Eddie Durham, Buster Smith, and Buck Clayton.
