January 14, 1995 | BILL KOHLHAASE, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
For more than 40 years, Frank Foster's career has been intertwined with that of the Count Basie Orchestra. The saxophonist-composer joined the Count's ensemble in 1953, wrote one of its trademark numbers, "Shiny Stockings," and played lead tenor well into the '60s. After Basie's death, Foster took charge of the band in 1986, a post he continues to hold. Foster, now 66, also has a career outside the Count's shadow. He was a central figure in drummer Elvin Jones' bands of the late '60s.
