AllMusic Review by

Originally released in 1963 at a time when Bobby Hackett was playing trumpet behind Tony Bennett, these are jazz-oriented versions of Broadway musicals. These sessions from the vaults of Columbia Records are not essential, but it's fun lite pop/jazz that doesn't take itself too seriously and is easy to relax with. Jazz Impressions of Oliver is self-explanatory while The Swingiest Gals in Town includes themes from Mame and Sweet Charity.
