AllMusic Review by

Man with a Happy Sound is a wonderfully fun 1962 session, showcasing Carroll's breezy, engaging scat style on both standards ("Route 66," "Honeysuckle Rose," "I Got Rhythm") and swinging blues. Carroll's backing group -- guitarist Grant Green, Specs Williams and Connie Lester -- provides dynamic support, often taking the spotlight without stealing it.
