Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars stating "Altoist Sonny Stitt and trombonist Benny Green make for a potent team on this spirited quintet set... the two distinctive horns (along with pianist Kirk Lightsey, bassist Herman Wright and drummer Roy Brooks) have little difficulty essaying these bop pieces, blues and ballads, and their personable styles match well together".[2]
