Tonight's Jazz Roots show features Janis Siegel, Kevin Mahogany and the Count Basie Orchestra with Special Guests Nikki Yanofsky and Nicole Henry.
Count Basie's music, characterized by a blues-steeped jumping beat and contrapuntal piano accents, was a showcase for top-singers. This show honors two great singers whose performances with the Count have reached legendary status.
Joe Williams, the Blues legend who called Las Vegas his home is represented by Down Beat poll-winner Kevin Mahogany.
Janis Siegel, Grammy winner and Manhattan Transfer vocalist extraor-dinaire, will pay tribute to the great Ella Fitzgerald.
