One O'Clock Jump spotlights many of Count Basie's best-known and most popular performances for Decca Records between 1932 and 1947. Figuring prominently in both the Basie-led orchestra and small combos are Lester Young and Herschel Evans on tenors, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison, and blues shouter Jimmy Rushing, not to mention the All-American Rhythm Section of Basie at the piano, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Walter Page, and drummer Jo Jones. The 51 tracks contain classic compositions from the swing era, including "One O'Clock Jump," "Sent for You Yesterday," "Blue and Sentimental," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," "Jive at Five," and many others. These Decca sessions, reissued here in glorious mono, contain the performances that brought about Basie's fame as one of the greatest bandleaders in the history of jazz. ~ Al Campbell
