One of the later and lesser-known entries in Thad Jones' expansive catalog, 61st & Rich' it was written as a tribute to the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra's original bassist, Richard Davis. It serves as a master class on how to construct an arrangement that manages to be densely packed with content while never sounding cluttered, all the while maintaining an infectious sense of swing. There's solo space for bass, trumpet and piano, and all five saxes double on various woodwinds.
