From Billboard - October 24, 1960: Arthur Godfrey talks a bit, sings a lot and strums his use. A fine group of studio-type jazz musicians blow polite swinging jazz behind him that mixes Dixieland with light modern touches. There are 10 sides to the LP which are made up of seven standards and three originals. Set should have appeal to many of Godfrey's fans, but sales to the hard-core jazz circle are doubtful.
