ERNIE WILKINS (1922-1999) One of the all-time great big band arrangers, tenor saxophonist Ernie Wilkins has provided swinging charts for the top band leaders since the late 1940s when he was a member of Earl Hines' last big band. He joined Count Basie in the early '50s, where in addition to his playing duties, he contributed dozens of charts which helped define the Basie sound. He also wrote charts for Dizzy Gillespie's famed State Department big band and later for big bands led by trumpeters Harry James and Clark Terry. The jazz world lost one of its all-time greats when Ernie passed away in 1999.
