AllMusic Review by

One O'Clock Jump: The Very Best of Count Basie contains 12 recordings, includings such staples as "Fools Rush In," "Sweet Lorraine," "Summertime," "April In Paris," "It Had to Be You," "Misty" and "One O'Clock Jump." However, it's unclear when these recordings were made -- from the presence of Jobim's "One Note Samba," it's likely that it's the late '60s or early '70s. In other words, this disc doesn't capture Basie at his peak. Portions of the record are quite entertaining, but only completists will need to seek this out, and it's likely that they have this material on another record.
