Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars stating "Out of This World relies less on originals than before, concentrating on standards which sound startlingly fresh. It's the loose, flexible groove that's the key... It's hard to sound this light and easy, and the Three Sounds pull it off with grace".[2]
