Basie One More Time (subtitled Music from the Pen of Quincy Jones) is an album by pianist and bandleader Count Basie performing the compositions and arrangements of Quincy Jones recorded in late 1958 and early 1959 and originally released on the Roulette label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
For this studio album from late 1958 and early 1959, the Count Basie Orchestra performs ten Quincy Jones compositions; he also contributed all of the arrangements. “I Needs to Be Beed With,” “For Lena and Lennie” and “The Midnight Sun Never Sets” all caught on and Jones’s charts helped expand the Basie sound without altering it. An excellent CD.
