Available for download from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

From Billboard - May 21, 1966: A sophisticated jazz-pop approach in mostly medium tempo, this music has some smooth, appealing sounds. Dave Pike's marimba is aided by organ, two trumpets and rhythm. Clary Terry handles most of the trumpet solo work in his swinging style. "You've Got Your Troubles" and "Sweet Tater Pie" are standouts with the latter being in a discotheque groove.
