Allmusic:
There are two schools of thought regarding this Clifford Brown with strings session (which has been reissued on CD). Brownie plays quite beautifully and shows off his warm tone on such numbers as "Portrait of Jenny," "Memories of You," "Embraceable You" and "Stardust." But on the other hand the string arrangements by Neal Hefti border on muzak and Brown never really departs from the melody. So the trumpeter's tone is the only reason to acquire this disc which to this listener is a slight disappointment, not living up to its potential.

Tracks:
-01. "Yesterdays" (Otto Harbach, Jerome Kern) – 2:59
-02. "Laura" (Johnny Mercer, David Raksin) – 3:26
-03. "What's New?" (Johnny Burke, Bob Haggart) – 3:23
-04. "Blue Moon" (Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers) – 3:13
-05. "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" (Oscar Hammerstein II, Kern) – 3:43
-06. "Embraceable You" (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin) – 3:00
-07. "Willow Weep for Me" (Ann Ronell) – 3:24
-08. "Memories of You" (Eubie Blake, Andy Razaf) – 3:31
-09. "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" (Harbach, Kern) – 3:14
-10. "Portrait of Jenny" (Irving Burgie, Jessie Mae Robinson) – 3:24
-11. "Where or When" (Hart, Rodgers) – 3:26
-12. "Stardust" (Hoagy Carmichael, Mitchell Parish) – 3:23
