This recording combines two original LPs, Pretty Music -- Prima Style, Vol. 1 and Wonderland by Night, showcasing the orchestral string-laden side of Louis Prima, accented by his wavering, placid trumpet playing and ooh-ing wordless group vocals. It's a collection of 24 tracks emphasizing standards, show tunes, cocktail lounge or late-night mood music, and syrupy romantic ballads. At times there are some really cheesy numbers, and overall this effort borders on Lawrence Welk, paling in comparison to Prima's more substantive work.
