Overview

In the early days of the Count Basie big band, many of his most enduring tunes were written and played. Quite a few are are available on this 18-track compilation; therefore, this set is valuable to those who want a collection of many of his truly greatest hits. Among the evergreens: "One O'Clock Jump," "Every Tub," "Blue and Sentimental," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," "Shorty George," "Jive at Five," the non-Basie-written but still classic "Topsy," and the legendary Jimmy "Mr. 5 X 5" Rushing singing "Sent for You Yesterday." You'd be hard-pressed to find a better grouping of preeminent Basie charts.
