Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Despite the title and the cover of this CD reissue (which makes it appear that the performances are greatly influenced by music of the Far East), the style played by guitarist Pat Martino's quartet is very much in the hard bop tradition. Martino was already developing his own sound and is in excellent form... It's a good example of Pat Martino's playing in his early period".[2]
