From Billboard - December 3, 1966: Arranged and conducted by Oliver Nelson, Prokofiev takes on a new dimension. Smith (organ) and the big band swing though all the memorable themes with modern quest. A first-class jazz treatment including some discotheque sounds and symphonic jazz. For swinging sounds and great jazz interpretation, this is an outstanding album.
