AllMusic Review by

Five big-band selections (including a remake of the half-century-old "Moten Swing") and four songs featuring an octet from the orchestra comprise this excellent outing by Count Basie recorded only a little more than a year before his death. However, the spirit of this music (helped out by some Ernie Wilkins) arrangements) make Count Basie seem ageless.
