Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars with its review stating "Blues - The Common Ground finds Burrell backed by lots of brass and wind instruments for most of the album, hardly his usual setting. But his guitar successfully weaves in and out of songs... blending with the band and creating a pleasant balance".[2]
