Reception [ edit ]
Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 3½ stars stating "As the dawn of the 1960s saw new-breed jazz being fomented, Burrell, Blakey, and company proved you could still swing and remain melodic while creating new sonic vistas. This recording is easily recommended to all". [3 ]
