Allmusic.com gave Basie a 5 star review:

The release of this album in late 1957 marked the beginning of a glorious new phase in Count Basie’s career. Signed to Roulette Records, the newly formed label owned by Morris Levy, the New York recording entrepreneur, jukebox mogul, club owner, and quasi-underworld figure, it took Basie’s core audience and a lot of other people by surprise, as a bold, forward-looking statement within the context of a big-band recording — if not as daring as what Duke Ellington had done at Newport in 1956, still a reminder that there was room for fresh, even dazzling improvisation (especially courtesy of Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis’s contribution) within the framework of a big-band jazz unit.
