From Billboard - July 21, 1956: Deejays are bound to wax enthusiastic over this album which spotlights lush, listenable instrumental treatments of 12 summery standards – "Summertime," "Where Or When?," "Over The Rainbow," "Time On My Hands," etc. Eight of the tunes are performed by full orchestra, and the remaining four by an effective combination of strings, celeste and harp. A colorful cover carries out the seasonal theme.
