A Five Star Album in the All Music Guide. This lively big band LP has excellent sound. We loved the music too.
Wish we could find some. It apparently sold very poorly, so poorly that there simply aren’t any copies around.
At 32, Florence already largely had his writing style together. He utilized top L.A. studio players for this set including such soloists as altoist Bud Shank, the tenors of Bill Perkins and Bob Hardaway, and trombonist Herbie Harper, but it is the tricky charts on the four originals and four standards (including “The Song Is You” and “Straight No Chaser”) that make this an LP worth searching for.” – AMG
