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

The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "Johnny Griffin, known as the world's fastest tenor-saxophonist in the late 1950's, purposely slowed down a bit on some of his later Riverside albums including this set... The music swings and the classic tenorman cuts loose a few times, making for enjoyable if not quite essential music".[2]
