Oliver Nelson was perhaps THE arranger of large jazz groups in the 1960's, creating landmark albums under his own name as well as backing Jazz soloists Like Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine. His work is sophisticated but at the same time fun and listenable. This record is no exception. The recording quality is great on this one and it's so nice to hear a big band in stereo as it was meant to be heard in a big room.

By the way, if you dig this CD, Oliver Nelson's big band arrangements from this same era can be heard on Jimmy Smith's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff" and Stanley Turrentine's "Joyride".

I'm not a big fan of the digipak packaging (which is environmentally friendly, being made mostly of paper, but which falls apart over time), but kudos to Verve for finally releasing this great session on CD. Fantabulous, indeed.

Bar none, Oliver Nelson was one of the greatest jazz artists from the 1960s - his compositions and orchestrations were brilliant and fresh, as was his superb work as a soloist.

I have long admired the music of this long-missed legend for years (since the days of his big band collaborations with Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Nancy Wilson and others), and this 1964 album (and the NY-based ensemble assembled in Chicago for the recording) swings from start to finish. There are NO standards to be found here, for Oliver composed six of the tracks.

Thank you Verve for re-releasing this long-lost gem!

THe CD was great as always when it comes to Oliver Nelson. Oliver lift us to young, he has arrange for ever jazz vocalist and instrumental. I sometimes think of what he would be doing now if he had lived.

I mean Oliver Nelson is a bit played out, but I'm sure there are people out there who would like this album.
