The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide 4/5 stars[4]

Allmusic awarded the album three stars stating, "Byrd was at the top of his form in those days. Unlike some of his earlier sets, these pretty and melodic recordings are very concise (lacking a sense of adventure), clocking in between one-and-a-half and three-and-a-half minutes".[3]
