Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 2.5/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 2½ stars stating "It's respectable, not too cool and not too hot early-'60s organ-sax jazz, with Wilson's organ and the still-teenaged Martino's guitar as vital to the success of the date as Jackson's tenor sax is".[2]
