AllMusic Review by

Allan Harris' third recording and second for Mons features the singer in a memorable meeting with the 54-piece Metropole Orchestra, which is conducted and arranged by Rob Pronk. Harris interprets 15 superior standards with great sensitivity and attention paid to the lyrics, although he always swings. Surprisingly, the strings do not weigh down the melodic music. Highlights include "Mean to Me," Charlie Parker's "Yardbird Suite," "The Folks Who Live on the Hill," "Don't Blame Me" and a cooking "Lookin' at the World Through Rose-Colored Glasses."
