"I decided that I would be one of the biggest new names; and I actually had some little fancy business cards printed up to announce it, 'Count Basie. Beware, the Count is Here.'" "All I wanted was to be big, to be in show business and to travel ... and that’s what I’ve been doing all my life.” “If you play a tune and a person don't tap their feet, don't play the tune.” It's the way you play that makes it. What I say is, for Christ's sake, you don't have to kill yourself to sing. Play like you play. Play like you think, and then you got it, if you're going to get it. And whatever you get, that's you, so that's your story.
Good Morning Blues : The Autobiography of Count Basie (1985) by Count Basie and Albert Murray
William "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) --------
"Mr. Basie, a short, stocky, taciturn but witty man who liked to wear a yachting cap offstage, presided over the band at the piano with apparent utmost casualness. He flicked out tightly economical, single-finger passages, directing his musicians with a glance, a lift of an eyebrow or a note hit gently but positively in passing."

Did you know I went to school for photography? It is true. I went to Ringling College of Art and Design and have a BFA in photography and digital imaging.
These are some of my favorites from when I was in college. The tea cup images are Polaroids that I used as transfers onto a table runner that I had dyed with tea.
The lady in the dress with the red glove was probably my favorite in college. A large print version of it hung in the photo department for quite some time after I graduated.
The mask photo was a lot of fun because I actually made the masks used in that series of photos.
These pretty much sum up a lot of what my college years were about. #freygirlfrey#countdownto40 ...
