From Billboard - November 15, 1975: Hank Mancini is one of the best composers on the scene today, and he's definitely not scared to enter any musical areas, as is exhibited on this record. It features his great arrangements and a super rhythm section that includes Joe Sample, Harvey Mason, Abe Laboriel and David T. Walker. The Mancini magic is never more evident that when he offers his treatment of several soul standards in addition to his originals. His remake of "Peter Gunn" theme sounds better than ever.
