"[...] Recorded in 1959, the mixture of show tunes with jazz standards is logical; this is a very unified set. Paich's arrangements always swing, altoist Art Pepper is well showcased, and among the other key players are Jimmy Giuffre (clarinet and baritone), vibraphonist Victor Feldman, trumpeter Stu Williamson, and Marty Paich on piano. This is fun if slightly conservative music that fits the modern mainstream of the era."
