Arranger Quincy Jones utilizes three overlapping studio bands to perform swinging renditions of a dozen Henry Mancini tunes on this Mercury LP. Bassist Major Holley, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Rahsaan Roland Kirk's reeds are three of the many voices that Jones employs, along with altoist Phil Woods, tenorman Zoot Sims, trumpeter Ernie Royal, and vibraphonist Gary Burton. Although generally brief (only one of the 12 songs is over four minutes), the renditions of such tunes as "Baby Elephant Walk," "Dreamsville," "Days of Wine and Roses," and "Moon River" are fresh and often lively.
