DOWN BEAT original review DANCE ALONG WITH BASIE:
“As a pop LP this is five-star right off; curiously enough, people frequently forget that bands such as this one are great dance bands at one and the same time they are great jazz bands. This album, for instance, should put most of the studio swing-band efforts to shame.” (Ralph J. Gleason)
