From the back cover: Jackie, some three dozen strings, a galaxy of fine songs in limpid, lush, languid Gleason treatments, plus the tenor sax of Charlie Ventura and the trumpet of Pee Wee Erwin.

From Billboard - October 29, 1966: Rich strings, subtle brass and superb melodies new and old, make this one of the finest Gleason mood albums to date. Aptly titled and defined for top sales, he has cleverly programmed from the evergreen, "I Wanna Be Loved By You" to the beautiful "If He Walked Into My Life" from B'ways "Mame."
