Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review states, "Golson, who does not play at all on this set, seemed inspired by the large instrumentation -- a full orchestra with trumpets, trombones, French horns, several English horns doubling on oboes, five reeds, up to six additional flutes and a pianoless rhythm section -- and his charts (six of his originals and three standards) are both inventive and full of subtle surprises".[2]
