Bill Potts is an originator in the truest and best sense of that word. It is impossible to hear more than eight bars of any of his arrangements without recognizing the man behind the pencil ...And the band plays with an esprit and a precision hardly ever encountered in a one-timetogetherstudio ensemble.
André Previn (from the liner notes)

Total time: 79:57 min.

*****
In this swinging big band jazz versions of Porgy And Bess and Bye Bye Birdie highlights, Potts' approach was largely to showcase the straight-ahead blowing abilities of his star-studded cast of New York regulars.
