AllMusic Review by

A couple of movie themes, a few standards, and some new songs, this mixed selection, which featured four different arranger/conductors, had some nice moments here and there -- a good duet with cornetist Bobby Hackett on "The Very Thought Of You," a late-night trio version of "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning" -- but was not one of Tony Bennett's more outstanding efforts. Also notable was that it marked a commercial marginalization for Bennett that all non-rock recording artsts were experiencing. Thus began the pressures Columbia would apply to Bennett to contemporize his image and his music.
