From Billboard - February 24, 1962: Woody Herman is showcased in this album as clarinet soloist, in a warm intimate ensemble that's composed of Woody and rhythm section. The set is pretty nearly evenly divided between easy, swinging medium-tempo tunes and moody ballads. Fine old standards compose the material; tunes like "Sweet Lorraine," "Don't Be That Way," "Someday Sweetheart" and "Mood Indigo". This is Woody's first album as an instrumental soloist and mighty pleasant listening it is too.
