AllMusic Review by

Over 30 years after The First Herd broke up, Flip Phillips had a reunion with Woody Herman for this LP. The emphasis is on ballads and Phillips plays beautifully throughout, but this set lacks variety (only "There Is No Greater Love" is taken at a medium pace). Still, within its limitations and with the orchestra itself mostly playing a supporting role, Phillips and Herman (the latter particularly on alto) blend very well together on this pretty music.
