The Verve compilation Count Basie's Finest Hour features a nice mix of sides recorded by the pianist/bandleader and his big band over the years. While it is by no means a definitive overview, it is a nice single-disc introduction to some of the jazz icon's best work. Included are such legendary tracks as "Corner Pocket," "One O'Clock Jump," and "Li'l Darlin'."
Born: 21 August 1904 in Red Bank, NJ
Years Active: '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s
