A Little Brief, But Good.

"I will just focus on my favorite ones. "Feel So Good," is melodious & smooth, while "Fun & Games," has CM 's flugelhorn giving the tune a rhythmic bounce, & the Sax solo in the second part sustains the louder notes. "Children Of Sanchez," may be CM's best known tune? Here background instruments add a soft background while the brass section starts everything off. Both compliment CM's flugelhorn to perfection. "The Land Of Make Believe," goes at a slow pace with the rhythm section pulling everything together with the background orchestra. The loud to soft subtlties gave this one added zing. All in all a very enjoyable compilation."
Go for the whole thing.

"If you really like Mangione then get the full length CD. Eleven bucks is too much, if you should pay any at all, to listen to only part of the tracks. Skip the preview and go buy Feels So Good or Children of Sanchez, at least you'll get the whole song and get your money's worth."
Okay for a sample, but not complete for the fan

"I agree with the fan from Virginia. This album is a disappointment for the Mangione fan who thinks he/she is getting the full tracks of the songs listed. Obviously, the second reviewer has never listened to the full tracks before offering the comments that this album is "perfect". Although the collection is a good synopsis of some of Mangione's better works, save your money for the real cuts, not the abbreviated versions here."
