Reception[edit]

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

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "Laid-back and loosely swinging, Good Move captures organist Freddie Roach near the peak of his form. Roach never leans too heavily on his instrument, preferring a calmer, tasteful attack, yet he is never boring because he has a strong sense of groove".[2]
