From the back cover: Hank and I had discussed the music for the "Gunn" film throughly and he confessed to me that this was to be one of his most difficult assignments. The six years that had passed since the TV "Peter Gunn" went off the air had seen sweeping changes, not only in jazz, but in all phases of the pop music spectrum. – Blake Edwards

Mancini succeed in leaving his magic "touch" on this package even though he expressed anxiety over producing arrangements that he felt would satisfy what he considered to be period market expectations.
