Reception[edit]

Review scores
Source Rating
AllMusic 4/5 stars[2]
The Penguin Guide to Jazz 2.5/4 stars[3]

The AllMusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 4 stars and stated "Sometimes loping, sometimes soaring solo piano from Andrew Hill, one of several impressive releases he made in the '80s. This time, however, it's neither the arrangements nor the songs that score, but Hill's emphatic execution of them".[2]
