Once again the saxophonist Alessandro de Santis, who comes from Rome, revives the spirit of the great Count Basie with his orchestra and singer Giacomo Di Benedetto. Each one of his proven men has studied and internalized the original arrangements of the legendary big band leader and pianist, but also transcriptions by Sammy Nestico or Neal Hefti. With them Alessandro de Santis celebrates the swinging legacy of the icon Count Basie, takes us back to the golden 50s and 60s and to Las Vegas, to the "Copa Room" of the hotel "The Sands", where unforgettable recordings of Basie and Frank Sinatra were made.
