Description

Billboard magazine reviewed the album in their 5 November 1958 issue and wrote that “The great artist gives a brace of standards his wonderful and soulful, gravel-voiced treatment…The combination of talents puts this package in the top flight category”.

Scott Yanow reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that “Although the accompaniment is pretty straight and unadventurous, it is enjoyable to hear Satch’s interpretations of such songs as “Have You Met Miss Jones,” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” “Home,” and “East of the Sun.” Many of his trumpet solos in the medium-tempo material are brief but dramatic, and his singing is typically expressive and good-humored”.
