Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars [1]

Writing for Allmusic, critic William Ruhlmann wrote of the album, "This one finds the artist determined to demonstrate the range of his talent, and that range extends from pop/rock to bluegrass, with lots of blues and folk-blues thrown in... Bromberg may still be more of a player than a frontman, and more of a tradtionalist than a songwriter, but this disc presents a new wrinkle in some very familiar styles, suggesting that it's possible for an accomplished sideman to move downstage and take over the spotlight."[1]
