TJR says

The tenth “A-lister” from the recently turned 40 year-old arrived in March 1956 and was an altogether snazzier, more up-tempo affair than its predecessor, the maudlin “In The Wee Small Hours”. If it was conceptualized as a soap opera then he’s now over the break up, there’s a new love in his life, and spring has sprung. Nelson Riddle’s arrangements are fantastic, the musicianship is top drawer and ol’ blue eyes is sparkling. I just can’t get over the fact that this middle of the road fare was ever deemed hip. Some say sophisticated… I say square.
