All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This excellent outing by the 1961 edition of Stan Kenton's orchestra has one classic Bill Holman's arrangement of "Malaguena", a superior solo by altoist Gabe Baltazar on "Stairway to the Stars," a feature for Ray Starling's Mellophonium "Misty", a good workout by veteran tenor Sam Donahue on "Body and Soul," Holman's reworking of "Limehouse Blues," and two colorful Dee Barton composition/arrangements. This well-rounded LP which also has some solos by trumpeter Marvin Stamm is one of Kenton's best of the era. [A 1999 reissue by Blue Note added three bonus tracks and remixed sound.]
