William (Count) Basie, Jazz pianist, and conductor was born August 21, 1904 in Red Bank, New Jersey. An incredible figure in 20th century music, Count Basie founded the Count Basie Orchestra in 1936. By the end of the 30s, the Basie band was one of the most popular in the world, with massive hits like 'One O'clock Jump' and 'Jumpin at the Woodside.'
Count Basie and his family made Freeport, Grand Bahama in The Bahamas their home for many years, and had strong ties to the Island. Count Basie’s wife, Catherine, formed the Catherine Basie Home for Exceptional Children (now called the Beacon School), in Grand Bahama, still the only one on the Island to date.
Count Basie died on April 26, 1984, but his memory lives on and is celebrated daily in Port Lucaya Marketplace
