Allmusic 1.5/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review stated "Eddie Harris had nearly as many voices as sax timbres -- ranging from nasal, sly asides to electronically strangled yowls and even falsetto. But none of these Eddie Harrises, nor the spirited percussive help of Willie Bobo, could save the humdrum, mostly R&B-based material that he created for this album". Despite this, the album has avid fans. [3]
