From the back cover: Though still young, Pete Rugolo has been instrumental in shaping the professional careers of names like Stan Kenton and June Christy, among others. Now along comes stereo to help shape the career of this young Californian arranger.

From Billboard - May 30, 1960: Pete Rugolo and His All Stars come thru with bright, and occasionally wild readings of some solid jazz items here. Rugolo's arrangements are startling modern, and the hip jazz fans will enjoy them. The stereo sound, however is disappointing. Tunes include originals, "Fawncy Meeting You," and "Later Team," and standards, "Nancy With the Laughing Face" and "Sunday, Monday or Always."
