This cd could be renamed "Art for Lovers". It's a change of pace from his bop orientated '50s lps on prestige- and a welcomed one at that. I'm usually cautious of "horns and strings" albums but this one works because Quincy Jones keeps the arraingments tasteful without allowing the strings to become overwhelming. Art's fans will not be disappointed because his trademark beautiful warm and fuzzy tone is on dislpay throughout the first nine tracks. Of lesser importance are the last four jazzy tracks recorded earlier in '53 with some swedish allstars.
