When they had time off from the Count Basie Orchestra in the late 1930s, the Count's rhythm musicians formed a small ensemble called The Kansas City Five, with trumpeter Buck Clayton, drummer Jo Jones, bassist Walter Page, rhythm guitarist Freddie Green and Eddie Durham's electric guitar (as a replacement for Count Basie's piano). When Lester Young joined the band in 1938, on clarinet and tenor sax, it became the Kansas City Six. Line-up: Buck Clayton (Trumpet) Eddie Durham (Guitar) Freddie Green (Guitar) Jo Jones (Drums) Walter Page (Bass)
