Reception[edit]

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

Allmusic reviewed the album stating "Although this was not a regular group and there is not an obvious leader, the music is on a higher level than that of a routine jam session. The challenging material and the high quality playing of the young greats makes this fairly obscure modern mainstream set well worth exploring".[2]
