Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "A fine, soulful jazz date, mostly slow blues and ballads, from one of the kings of honky-tonk saxophone. Jackson's smooth, Ben Webster-ish tenor playing is seldom surprising, but always satisfying".[2]
