Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars stating " Clark Terry and some of the top Ellington sidemen of the period perform eight songs associated with Duke, but with fresh arrangements. There is plenty of solo space for Terry, Gonsalves, and Hodges, and the arrangements by Terry and Mercer Ellington cast a new light on some of the warhorses".[2]
