"Some arrangers seem made to order for certain bands... It seems that Neil Hefti (had) found his band in Count Basie...

"Like Fletcher's writing for Benny's musicians, Neal's suits the tastes and temperaments of the Basie men in every sort of detail."
- from liner notes by Barry Ulanov

After the success of the Grammy winning "Atomic Basie", the duo of Count Basie and Neil Hefti collaborated again for this second successful album "Basie Plays Hefti". By matching the individual parts of the arrangements to the unique abilities of Basie's band, Neil Hefti was able to highlight the best of their talents.
