Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review states "With the wine-and-candlelight string backdrops of Dick Marx throwing velvet drapery in back of a lush tenor sax, this LP oozes the mood-music formula so favored by pop record producers in mid-century America... A period piece, but seductive if you're in the mood".[3]
