|Junior Mance chronology|
Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars with the review by Al Campbell stating, "Pianist Junior Mance was in excellent company on this inspired 1962 session with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Mickey Roker. It's unfortunate this trio only recorded together on this one date as their unity propels the blues, gospel, and bebop ideas Mance consistently feeds them".
