CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS' PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE
“Bennett’s ability to straddle jazz and popular music was one he shared with few others. He managed to retain more of a jazz feel than either, and that’s what Basie senses in him: a kindred spirit who is devoted to the not so very taxing business of s(w)inging the song with minimum distraction.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ
“Bennett’s collaboration with the older master marked one of the highlights of his career. And for a very good reason: his charming and sophisticated voice, full of power and relaxation, and the masterful orchestra’s immaculate swing were made for one another.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
New York, 1958.
