One O'clock Jump

Lyrics ,Music:Count Basie

The song was publishe 1938.

William “Count” Basie formed his first band, Basie’s Barons of Swing,
in Kansas City in 1935.
A veteran of the popular Kansas City band led by Bennie Moten,
Basie assembled his first group following Moten’s death,
utilizing a number of Moten’s sidemen.
The band soon found steady employment at K.C.’s Reno Club.
In the excellent book Kansas City Jazz: From Ragtime to Bebop--A History
by Frank Driggs and Chuck Haddix,
the authors quote a 1936 Downbeat article written by Dave Dexter,
who described an evening at the Reno.
Dexter’s opinion of the band was that it “needed seasoning”
but had a lot to offer.
He wasn’t so keen on the Reno, which he described as
“a dive” and “one of the town’s most unsavory holes.”

My pretty little poppy
You're like that lovely flower, so sweet and heavenly
Since I found you
My heart is wrapped around you
And loving you it seems to beat a rhapsody
The pretty little poppy
Must copy its endearing charm from you
Amapola, Amapola
How I long to hear you say, "I love you."
