Reception[edit]

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

Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Herbie Mann was a flutist who occasionally played tenor and Bobby Jaspar a tenor-saxophonist who doubled on flute. Two of the four songs find them switching back and forth while the other two are strictly flute features... the two lead voices constantly interact and trade off during this enjoyable performance".[2]
