Allmusic3/5 stars link

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and states "Cannonball Adderley's Mercury albums (most of which, like this LP, are long out-of-print) find the youthful altoist trying to unsuccessfully keep his quintet with brother Nat together. Despite the powerful bop-oriented music they consistently recorded, the band would break up in a year, only to regroup with great success in 1959."[3]
