From the back cover: A student of Maurice Fitzwarren of the Royal Farnsworth Orchestra School, Roy Freeman has received recognition from all of England's music critics for the fine mellow tone he achieves on his instrument. Notice the control on the unusual opening passages of Moritat. The ethereal qualities of the low register vibrato. Shades of Bobby Hackett. This is an album to be played and relaxed to.

From Billboard - October 7, 1957: Routine pop item by English work with trumpet featured throughout. Program includes items possibly more familiar to English audiences than ours. The sound inclines toward an unpleasant "boominess" in spots but bargain-hunters won't wince. At the $1.49 price, it should have more than a few takers.
