"I like that disc so much, I had it ten years ago, but I lost it; I was searching this disc in every place and every city, but nobody had it!!; I think because is a classical Lp and is difficult to find it.
This disc is essential for every Ray Conniff Fan, the music is delightfull, romantic and excellent for dance; I rated it with 5 stars because every number in the disc makes me feel that I'm young and fresh! I played it to my mother (she was a really Ray Conniff fan since 1955) and we thaught it was the best example of "The Happy dance years of instrumental music"; My favourite numbers are "Stompin'at the Savoy", "Ebb Tide", "April love" and "I Understand" (but every song in this disc is incredible)¡¡Phenomenal!! ¡¡Fabulous!! ¡¡¡Pure Ray Conniff!!!"

"This is Ray Conniff at the top of his form. One of the things often overlooked about Conniff is that, in addition to being a brilliant arranger, he was a superb conductor. The sound that he gets out of a relatively small ensemble on this CD is simply amazing. Fortunately, his sound engineers, from S'Marvelous on, captured him in rich, detailed, and exciting stereo sound. The last time I listened to this CD, the first chord just made me jump. The songs on this CD are diverse, but even the older ones, like Tiger Rag and Stomping at the Savoy, sound brilliantly updated by the arrangements. The most drop dead gorgeous performance on the disc is of Pat Boone's hit, April Love, which flows along with lovely contributions from the chorus and the brass. Rose Room features a brilliant trombone solo, which for all I know may just be Ray himself. If you've never heard Ray Conniff at the peak of his career and wondered what all the fuss is about, the price of this CD should render it a welcome purchase for beginning afficianados."
