"One of Basie's big band albums for Pablo, recorded in May 1983, as opposed to the many small group ones he did for that label. Basie is in a mellow mood on this outing, with tempos relaxed or slow. Four of the tunes are blues; SUNDAY AT THE SAVOY is over 12 minutes long and way down home and nice. Eric Dixon (ts), Sonny Cohn (tp), Chris Woods (as) and Booty Wood (tb) are the chief soloist, and Sam Nestico did the excellent arranging. One of Basie's better Pablo recordings, which is saying a lot."
