This ornament comes from the Thomas Glenn "Jazz Collection" introduced several seasons ago and is now a "retired" ornament.
The ornament was named in honor of Count Basie (08/21/1904 - 04/26/1984), an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. Born William James Basie, he started his career improvising accompaniment for silent films. He formed his own orchestra in 1935, and led the group for almost 50 years.
