Allmusic:
This LP has a particularly strong all-around set by the Modern Jazz Quartet. While John Lewis' "Versailles" and an 11-minute "Fontessa" show the seriousness of the group (and the influence of Western classical music), other pieces (such as "Bluesology," "Woody 'N You" and a pair of ballads) look toward the group's roots in bop and permit the band to swing hard.

Tracks
-1. "Versailles" (John Lewis) - 3:22
-2. "Angel Eyes" (Earl Brent, Matt Dennis) - 3:48
-3. "Fontessa" (Lewis) - 11:12
-4. "Over the Rainbow" (Harold Arlen, E.Y. Harburg) - 3:50
-5. "Bluesology" (Milt Jackson) - 5:04

-7. "Woodyn You" (Dizzy Gillespie) - 4:25
