Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "Pianist Gene Harris, bassist Andy Simpkins and drummer Bill Dowdy are in top form performing their brand of funky jazz, which left plenty of room for inventive solos along with the percolating grooves... Well worth searching for".[2]
