Earle Warren was Count number Basie’s longtime business lead altoist and occasional pop ballad singer. He performed piano, banjo, and ukulele in a family group band before taking on the saxophone, ultimately buying the alto. He led rings within the Midwest during area of the 1930s before signing up for Basie in 1937. Before breakup from the band by the end of 1949, Warren was a solid presence within the saxophone section despite the fact that he rarely was presented with a full single. In old age he proved helpful as supervisor for a number of R&B works, had possibilities to single with Buck Clayton’s groupings, was featured within the ’70s film Blessed to Golf swing, and going the Countsmen beginning in 1973.
