Scott Yanow of Allmusic states, "Hawkins proves again and again why his sound is not only the epitome of jazz, but forever timeless... The demonstrative yet subtle Hawkins is in full flight here, with the equally elegant Thomas and naturally subdued Dickenson in lock step. What a joy they must have been to hear together at a club or concert date, if in fact it happened in this small-group setting".[2]
