Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars stating "The music is generally quite commercial and is certainly not recommended to bebop purists, although it has some strong moments. But overall these performances succeed more as background music than as creative jazz".[3]
