About Count Basic
Representing the smoother side of Acid Jazz, Count Basic are often heard in the company of such like-minded artists as Galliano, Incognito and the Young Disciples. Based in Austria (yet critically acclaimed worldwide), this act unites the talents of guitarist Peter Legat and soul vocalist Kelli Sae. Originally known for their jazz instrumentals, Count Basic began incorporating a more distinctive pop flavor with a heavier R&B influence on later albums such as Bigger & Brighter. In 2000, Downtempo heroes Kruder & Dorfmeister injected a playful tone to some Count Basic songs with Count Basic: Peter Kruder & Richard Dorfmeister Remixes.
