AllMusic Review by

Despite the groovy groupie on the cover, this is a repackaging of an earlier '60s LP from Montenegro, skimping on the time (a paltry nine tracks), but featuring the kookier side of Montenegro, from the very silly, bouncing kettle drums on "Dardanella" to the old standard "Peg O' My Heart" turned into a waltz-cha cha. There are also some very solid trumpet solos featured in these essentially big band arrangements, but the lack of credits or liner notes doesn't help matters.
