Count Basie: Jumpin' at the Woodside

Here is a video of the famous Count Basie Orchestra playing Jumpin' at the Woodside. I'm not sure when it recorded but you should compare this performance with the recording which the OCR recommends (Count Basie 1937-1943 Giants of Jazz CD53072 or Count Basie: One O'Clock Jump Naxos Jazz Legends, 812066-2).

The Count Basie Orchestra is still going strong: check out their work here.
