Allmusic 3.5/5 stars[1]
The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide 2/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Bruce Eder awarded the album three and a half stars and said that Vaughan "brings an almost chameleon-like presence to this album...which encompasses a decidedly—almost defiantly—contemporary repertory...The accompaniments may almost be too busy for what the songs themselves can bear, but Vaughan always keeps up regardless of the settings and arrangements...On that basis alone, it's a lot more than a mere curio in her output from this period".[1]
