John S. Wilson's contemporaneous review was positive, noting that both quintet and nonet bands feature "Farmer playing with broad authority no matter what the fare at hand while Golson's warm, dark lines flare and glide through all the pieces." Scott Yanow of Allmusic stated, "this underrated gem served as a strong start to Benny Golson's influential solo career".
