Available from the usual online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here for a glance at the back cover. The jacket copy excerpt below captures, in words, the essence of the pleasant space age easy/pop set.

From the back cover: With superb skill, feeling and artistry, Almeida performs a collection of the new and lovely songs of today. Backing him are velvety strings, woodwinds, and the percussive voices of vibes, piano, celeste, bass, and drums. The arrangements are by Lex de Azenedo, Clare Fischer, and Dick Grove. The Look Of Love, ardently painted in the incomparable colors of the Spanish guitar, is by Laurindo Almedia.
