Nat King Cole is a little much less efficient than Sinatra at up-tempo material; he often tends to undersing these sprightly standards, and also May conserves his dramatic horn charts and percussion shots for moments as soon as Cole is amethod from the microphone.

Even so, by the fifth track, "These Foolish Things Remind Me of You," May has actually retreated to ballad time, and though his embellishments threaten to break out behind the singer, Cole gives an assured, unhurried performance. And that"s the point: that Cole has actually tamed the rambunctious May does not mean he doesn"t provide wonderful interpretations to some wonderful songs: "Don"t Get Around Much Anymore," "Just One of Those Things," "The Song Is Ended (But the Melody Lingers On)." And the light-handed swing supports those efforts well."William Ruhlmann -All Music Guide"I"m an interpreter of stories, as soon as I perform it"s like I"m simply sitting dvery own at my piano and informing fairy stories."Nat Cole -Time magazine (1951)
