All About Jazz5/5 stars[7]

The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow stated "This release from altoist Sonny Fortune is a particularly strong session, a mostly high-powered modal modern mainstream date with Fortune playing at his best and contributing five of the eight compositions ... For Sonny Fortune (who has been underrated throughout his career), this is a pretty definitive session".[6] On All About Jazz, Florence Wetzell noted "It's a strong group and their mutual understanding is evident throughout ... Each horn gets copious solo space as does the elegant Hicks".[7]
