Arranger Billy Ver Planck leads an all-star orchestra through seven spirited numbers. The highpoint is trombonist Bill Harris's jubilant playing on "Playgirl Stroll" but there are also strong spots for trumpeter Joe Wilder, altoist Phil Woods, the tenor of Seldon Powell and Eddie Costa on piano and vibes. This obscure LP, reissued by Muse in 1985, is a winner.
