Brother Ray's initial foray into standards is a career highlight. For the first half, Charles' old friend Quincy Jones crafts hard-swinging big band charts that match Ray's band with stars from the Ellington and Basie organizations. Ralph Burns arranges the jazz-meets-string-orchestra second half, which features "Just for a Thrill" and "Come Rain or Come Shine."
