Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

In his review for Allmusic, Scott Yanow stated "the colorful ensembles and the very adept soloing by the French horns make this a particularly memorable recording. Strange that this album has been obscure for so long. Only the brief playing time keeps this intriguing set from getting a higher rating".[3]
