Diane Schuur Sings Basie

Diane Schuur Sings Basie

On November 2–3, at 7pm and 9:30pm, in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s The Appel Room, Diane Schuur will perform tunes from Diane Schuur & The Count Basie Orchestra, her classic album that topped the Billboard jazz charts for nearly a year and earned Schuur her second Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. Jazz at Lincoln Center’s The Appel Room is located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York.

In this special concert event entitled Diane Schuur Sings Basie, Schuur will be accompanied by the Riley Mulherkar Big Band for an evening of multi-generational mentorship and creative exchange.

With big arrangements, infectious riffs, and exuberant call and response, Basie’s music is a cornerstone jazz style that’s irresistible in live settings. Part of Basie’s lasting popularity also comes from his iconic series of Basie singers, a lineage in which Schuur follows Ella Fitzgerald by less than a decade. Schuur has often worked with leaders of previous generations, like Ray Charles and Stan Getz, and she now joins a leader of tomorrow in this new intergenerational pairing. Mulherkar’s energetic young big band continues the Basie tradition of bringing a party to the concert hall, and the group is a perfect fit for a powerhouse vocalist like Schuur. Together they will bring Basie’s unstoppable swing to The Appel Room through songs such as “Everyday (I Have the Blues),” “Them There Eyes,” “You Can Have It,” and “Deedles’ Blues.”
