For this studio album from late 1958 and early 1959, the Count Basie Orchestra performs ten Quincy Jones compositions; he also contributed all of the arrangements. "I Needs to Be Beed With," "For Lena and Lennie" and "The Midnight Sun Never Sets" all caught on and Jones's charts helped expand the Basie sound without altering it. An excellent CD. ~ Scott Yanow
