"Mance's many fans have no reason to despair though for, in addition to a boppish rendition of "Girl of my dreams", the pianist performs a generous amount of blues and soulful pieces.” - All Music

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.
