Reception[edit]

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

The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "Things get started with tepid versions of the title track and Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly With His Song," both veering dangerously close to Muzak territory. The pieces are salvaged, however, by Joe Beck and Hugh McCracken's guitar work and Hank Jones' steady hand at the keyboards".[2]
