ē A new side of Al Hirtís amazing artistry was revealed in this album. The big, broad, brass tone turns subtle and subdued.

ē Hirt threads his finely-honed trumpet against a silken tapestry of strings masterfully arranged and conducted by Marty Paich. For the last six tracks, Henri Renť surrounds Hirt with a string orchestra including rhythm, four trombones, and one baritone sax.

ē Hirtís horn is occasionally muted, but more often it is heard in restrained full voice as it clearly defines the varying shades of mood. The albumís program of well-known selections takes on a new dimension of meaning in Hirtís hands. His horn can be haunting or tender, wistful or wailing, or quietly chuckling in retrospect.
