"This compilation is a nostalgic romp! Through his long career Fiedler and the Boston Pops shared the stage with many accomplished soloists. He insisted that one appear with him for every concert and this CD is a sample of such talents. It is a mixed bag with mixed results. The Al Hirt and Duke Ellington arrangements come off the best! Some of the performances are recorded live, some are studio, making for uneven sound
through out. The engineers do a good job with the remastering but balancing is a problem. The Pennario and Leontyne Price selections seem out of place hear, more like to fill up the 68min. disc. The Nero-Hayman
arr. of "I Got Rhythm" is performed at break neck speed. I prefer the composers own version. All in all this is a pleasant program that can be obtained at a bargain price. Charming annotation by Fiedler's daughter Johanna is included."
