From It Must Be Him:

The contemporary music of today is undergoing the most radical and exciting change I have witnessed in the entire twenty-five years I have been associated with the recording industry.

The harmonic structures, melodic lines and rhythmic backgrounds used in these new songs are most refreshing, and chord structures and melodies like those found in Yesterday, A Man and a Woman, Don't Sleep in the Subway, Music to Watch Girls By and It Must Be Him,to give a few examples, show much thought and portray fine musicianship on the part of the young writers of today.

Personally, I find the radical departure from the old, stereotyped chord progressions very uplifting and stimulating, and I do hope you will enjoy the performances of the singers in this album of today's contemporary music as much as we enjoyed recording it for you.

Sincerely yours,

Ray Conniff

From Honey:

The dramatic photo of Ray conducting was taken as he was working with the Singers at the recording sessions of this album.
"The interprestations and performances of these contemporary songs by the Singers are certainly some of the very finest we have ever recorded," were Ray's own words at the close of the sessions.
As you listen we're sure you will agree that the fresh new sounds on this album rank well up there with [Ray Conniff's best work.], if not above, some of their more recent releases such as "Somewhere My Love," "This Is My Song" and "It Must Be Him."
