The eight CDs that make up this collection document the second rise of Count Basie's big band. The second band had been created at the urging of Billy Eckstine, who convinced Basie that even though the era of the large jazz-swing orchestra - an era he was an architect of - was by all appearances over, he could make a real go of it with his brand of blues and swing.

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 an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother first taught him piano and he started performing in his teens.

The Complete Clef/Verve Count Basie Fifties Studio Recordings (Mosaic). Count Basie's first band of the Forties was his best. Accumulating so many outstanding musicians, William "Count" Basie didn't need elaborate arrangements to produce music of great quality. With men like Lester Young and Buck Clayton, he just had to find enough room for them to solo, and Basie's spare charts bookended brilliant solo after solo. His "Old Testament" band lasted until 1950, when, due to economic conditions, he formed a smaller group.
