Allmusic 4/5 stars[4]

Jason Ankeny of Allmusic states, "Comin' on Strong ranks among James Moody's most challenging and rewarding sessions -- with its complex rhythms and mercurial tempos, the material is more like a series of obstacle courses than a collection of melodies, but Moody and his collaborators navigate the twists and turns with dexterity and grace".[4]
