Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

Stewart Mason of Allmusic stated, "The organ trio format is so ensconced in the minds of soul-jazz fans that hearing this album, which puts Richard "Groove" Holmes' funky Hammond B3 in the context of a larger group, sounds odd and over-produced at first... but thankfully, Holmes' sidemen are up to the task at hand and steer clear of over-playing... The original "Groove's Blue Groove" is a particular highlight, but the entire album is worthy".[2]
