Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "The music (four Morgan and one McLean originals), even while being tied to the hard bop tradition, is challenging and (with the exception of the closing uptempo blues "Zip Code") quite tricky; really inspiring the talented players. An underrated gem.".[1]
