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 James "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others.

Given the paucity of Basie recordings from the '40s issued by his own label, the quality and content of this collection of 14 songs cut exclusively for radio in 1944 is scandalously good. The sound quality is good to excellent, with exceptional clarity and richness and no distortion, and the textures are very close and vivid - the Count's piano on "Basie Boogie" is sharper and crisper than it is on most of his Columbia recordings of the period that have been reissued. The notes by the late Dave Dexter, Jr. are informative and lively, and, as with all Hindsight releases, the estate of the artist is paid a royalty for sales of this CD release.

Count Basie was among the most important bandleaders of the swing era. With the exception of a brief period in the early '50s, he led a big band from 1935 until his death almost 50 years later, and the band continued to perform after he died. Basie's orchestra was characterized by a light, swinging rhythm section that he led from the piano, lively ensemble work, and generous soloing. Basie was not a composer like Duke Ellington or an important soloist like Benny Goodman. His instrument was his band, which was considered the epitome of swing and became broadly influential on jazz. Basie returned to New York for an extended engagement at the small club the Famous Door in 1938 that really established the band as a success. Stop Beatin' Round the Mulberry Bush, with Rushing on vocals, became a Top Ten hit in the fall of 1938.
