Tasteful, refined, late-career effort

"Milt's vibes are as tasteful as ever, playing plenty of his trademark fast bop runs that gently nudge yet never strain the boundaries of each tune. John Clayton plays creative bass lines that improvise melodically along with him on some of the tunes. A lot of sweet ballads, most with lush string arrangements that are complementary, but occasionally distracting. A couple of faster tunes vary the pace. Very pleasant, though lacking enough edge for some listeners."
Ah, what strings!!

"Wonderful variety of textures alternating on different tracks, ranging from just vibes & bass, to vibes/piano/bass/drums, to several tracks (including "This Masquerade", which is the song that I heard on the radio that turned me on to this artist/album) using a most lucscious string section -- which I don't often hear in instrumental jazz these days but that was common (especially behind vocalists like Sinatra) in pop in the 50s/60s."
