Count Basie Orchestra at Disneyland - June 1984

When Basie died in April of 1984 the band continued under the leadership of Thad Jones. Here's an excerpt from the appearance at Disneyland in June of that year.

It would be wonderful if Disney released this entire series on DVD, but the odds of that happening are slim. I'm glad I recorded the shows on vhs when they originally aired.
