This year's Homecoming Dance
will feature 'Count' Basie and his
Basie was born in the town of
Red Bank, New Jersey. He re-
ceived his first piano lessons from
his mother and was pounding the
piano at the age of five.
While still in his teens, Basie
came to the midwest to seek his
fame and fortune as a musician,
He landed his first professional
job in 1929 as pianist and arranger
with Walter Page's Blue Devils.
Went on Tour
He went on tour with Benny
Moten's band in Kansas City, tak-
ing the band over when Moten died
in 1936. Walter Page, who gave
Basie his first job, now plays
when his fingers struck a piano
string bass in the Count's band.
Known now as the famous
"Jump King of Swing," Basie has
quite a rhythm section. With Gus
Johnson at the drums, Freddie
Greene on the guitar and the
Count at the piano, the Basie rhy-
thm section has been described by
music critics as "the finest in the
history of music."
Basie gained his title of "Count"
while in Chicago. Without fare for
a trip back home to Red Bank he
filled in at a nickel movie house
as a piano player. The manner in
which Basie conducted himself
when his fingers struck a piano
keyboard earnea him his title of
"Count" from the house manager.
He has kept this title ever since.
Basie is currently occypying his
spare time in writing a history of
jazz, boogie woogie and blues. Long
regarded as one of the foremost
exponents and stylists of these
types of music, he can write from
experience, dating back to the days
when he played piano in company
with some of America's musical
He is also seriously considering
the idea of presenting a musical
review based on the subject of
these writings. Two film studios
already have expressed interestin
the screen rights to the Basie
Basie has played at leading dance
spots around the country leaving
a trail of broken attendance and
box office records. He is now
ranked among the nation's top ten
bands and when he plays at Home-
coming Dance Saturday, Oct. 27,
students are in for an evening of
Those wonderful lamb's wool or
