Description
Recorded in the mid-1950s, this album is named after one of the Basie band's most crowd-pleasing tunes, but it has a plethora of other superb songs and arrangements showcasing its collective chops as well, including Freddie Green's "Corner Pocket," Frank Foster's "Shiny Stockings," Duke Ellington's "What Am I Here For?," and Frank Wess's "Magic." Henry Coker's trombone is featured on Foster's "Didn't You?" and "Midgets" is performed by the sextet of Joe Newman, Frank Wess, and the rhythm section. Other tunes include "Mambo Inn" and Neal Hefti's "Dinner With Friends."

"Basie made the most of a formidable new reed section, trumpets that streamlined the old Basie fire with absolute precision, and the first of a line of effusive drummers, Gus Johnson…. The new master edition has been quite handsomely restored in sonic terms and has been lengthened by seven alternative takes."—Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD
