From Jukebox Hits 1940-1952 and 305 other releases

“One O’Clock Jump” was originally named “Blue Balls” by Count Basie’s band, but when being recorded on the radio, Basie was asked what the name of the song was. Since it was too inappropriate for radio, he looked at the clock and responded with “One O’Clock Jump”.
