Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated "It's evident from the opening pair of Latin-flavored performances that Back on the Scene is one of Bennie Green's most diverse efforts. Green's warm, supple tone and fondness for swinging, bop-influenced mainstream jazz and jump blues hasn't disappeared; he's just found new facets in his style... Even with this vast array of styles, Back on the Scene retains all the good-natured spirit and humor of his earlier Prestige albums".[2]
