Count Basie: “I do dig something that’s sort of in a mood where you can kind of halfway pat your foot if possible, and I think it’s easy to listen to, too, really. And I sort of like to simplify things, which is the only way that I can do it. But even if I really could play a lot of piano, I would try to simplify it for myself, because this is the type of thing that I like.”
