"First, I need to say that overall, this is a fine CD. Like "Precocious Percussion", another CD in Pickwick's "Lounge Sensations" set, all of the tracks are instrumental. However, some cuts are pure Musak. "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" and "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" are the two worst offenders here, with the former being more Musaky than the latter. Both are okay, and at long last you may finally be able to put a name to the instantly recognizable "Cherry Pink" tune, but they come across as pure elevator music. There are perhaps two other cuts that run a distant third and fourth as far as Musak quality goes.Regardless, the rest of the disc is great and Loungey. "Montoona Clipper" alone is worth the price of the CD, as are the jazzy takes on "Perry Mason" and "Goldfinger".Of the four discs in Pickwick's set, I'd recommend "Lover's Midnight Redezvouz" and "Ring-a-Ding Swing" over "Precocious Percussion" and "Brash & Brassy". On the other hand, all four are a pretty good set from a non-Capitol, non-Ultra-Lounge outfit."
