Tempo? Faaast! Vocal phrasing? Impressive—and each word sounds crystal clear! Arrangement? Both refined and punchy! Solos? Herb Geller's and Bob Enevoldsen's names say it all! Will that be enough to convince you that you'd better fasten your seat belt during these <2½ minutes, and that you will sport a broad smile all along that ride and long after it's over, too? Tormé and Paich were really a gas during these '56 sessions, and this track is among the highlights of the repertoire they recorded then. Any more questions?
