- Track listing
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "It is not the electronics of Andy LaVerne that is bothersome on this LP but the poppish material (which includes the theme from Evita) and the excessive amount of keyboardists and guitarists. Stan Getz cannot be blamed for trying something new (he even uses an Echoplex sparingly) and his cool-toned tenor is in fine form but the overall results are rather forgettable".
