Reception[edit]

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

The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "A touch lightweight at times but fun anyway... Most of the selections on this date are treated rhythmically, either R&B-ish or with a Latin feel. The results will not reward close listening, but Lytle plays well and this CD will be considered quite satisfying at parties".[2]
