Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Matt Collar awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Head On is a highly cerebral and atmospheric affair that is somewhat different than his other equally experimental '70s work... Fans of expansive, searching '70s jazz will definitely want to seek Head On out".[2]
