AllMusic Review by

Arthur Prysock/Count Basie documents a set of wonderful mid-'60s cuts in which Arthur Prysock came the closest of any replacements to duplicating the Joe Williams sound in the Basie orchestra. Seven saxes are led by Lockjaw Davis in a big band that drives Prysock. Of the 11 songs, the best are "I Could Write a Book" and "Don't Go to Strangers." [The 2015 Verve reissue added three bonus tracks to the original program.]
