Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "In all, Flip is a very worthwhile side to add to the Mobley shelf. But hurry, being part of the Blue Note Connoisseur series with its fantastic sonic reproduction has its downside -- titles featured in it go out of print quickly -- even if they deserve to be continually available.".[1]
