Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

Lindsay Planer of Allmusic states, "The critical argument proposing that Baker's style is more akin to bop -- and the residual post-bop -- than the West Coast cool that he is often connected with gets tremendous validation throughout not only the four big-band tracks, but also the remainder of the album".[2]
