In his review for AllMusic, Scott Yanow stated "The music is somewhat adventurous with Chambers as the lead voice on the numbers on which he plays piano; the final two performances are organ-drum duets that put more of an emphasis on Young's unique sound. This interesting session has some surprising music."[2]

The song "Mind Rain" was prominently sampled in the Nas song "N.Y. State of Mind" off his critically acclaimed debut album Illmatic.
