At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover!

A beautiful record – but that's no surprise, since most of the later work of Coleman Hawkins tends to be great!
