AllMusic Review by

Mel Tormé's vocals are sublime on this 12-track Laserlight collection taken from various 1940s and '50s sessions. Why the company has not provided anything except minimal, hard-to-read information is infuriating, but the oversight does not ruin otherwise fabulous music. The collection includes several Tormé originals like "Swinging on the Moon" and "I'm Gonna Miss You," and matches him with the Harry Bosnik, Buzz Adiam, Don Elliot and Don Trenier orchestras, plus the Dave Barbour Four and Page Cavanaugh Trio.
