The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "Trumpet and drum duets are not exactly commonplace, making this collaboration between Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell something special... The use of space is consistently impressive and those listeners with open ears will find this thoughtful date quite interesting".[2]
