One of Gold's better projects and a prefect entry for the 1957 mood music market that was filled with "exotic" sounds. The jacket features vibrant cover art that nicely sets the tone for Gold's soft sounding arrangements that shimmer with percussion and flow from one track to another without breaking the spell he brews up in this package.

From the back cover: The man responsible for the original approach heard in this collection, Marty Gold, is a New Yorker who made his debut in a recital at Town Hall at the age of twelve and decided then and there that music was to be his career. He is an arranger, composer and conductor whose talents have been sought and used by Vaughn Monroe, Sarah Vaughan, Patti Page, Charlie Barnet, Ben Bernie, the Four Aces and Georgia Gibbs. Since 1948, he has been associated with the Three Suns and he has worked on all of the Three Suns and Orchestra albums. – John S. Wilson
