Writing for Allmusic, music critic Scott Yanow wrote of the album "This odd LP certainly stands out in his discography. The five brief "Interludes," along with "Joey's Blues," feature Pass playing unaccompanied for some of the first times on record, but with the exception of the "Blues," the music is quiet and uneventful. The remaining seven selections are quite a contrast, for they feature Pass and a funky rhythm section essentially accompanying seven singers on a variety of very dated pop songs; for his part, Pass sounds quite uncomfortable."[1]
